Scandinavia – the perfect destination for foodies!

Last week saw the European finals of the most prestigious food contest in the world, the Bocuse d’Or. Informally known as the world championships of fine culinary arts and cooking, the event to decide the qualifiers from Europe was held in Tallinn – the capital of Estonia. With some of the strongest contestant nations, the group is considered the most difficult of them all to advance in – and this year’s winner was Team Norway.

Led by the young and brilliant Norwegian chef Christian André Pettersen, they scored a stunning victory and first place. This is the second time he has reached the top in the European qualifiers – last time being in 2018. In the 2019 competition, his team won bronze medal in the Grand Finale held in Lyon, France. That final saw Denmark, Sweden and Norway place 1st, 2nd and 3rd on the podium, further cementing the Scandinavian countries as the world leaders in the art of gastronomy and fine dining.

 

A huge part of the Nordic chefs’ success comes from the closeness to nature and the rich selection of prime ingredients found in the region. From the rich oceans outside the coast of Norway, the lush forests of Sweden to the rolling pastures of Denmark – there are fresh and tasteful food to be found everywhere. And the Nordic chefs truly know how to make the most out of the local specialities and culinary treats!
