At the heart of the Swedish capital, Tommy Myllymaki, made the difference among 19 other participants after 5 hours and a half of breathtaking tests! He won in front of crowds of crazy supporters, and HRH Prince Carl Philip of Sweden. The swede stood out by displaying an incredible mastery of the imposed products: Swedish piglet by Havor Gard, Coal fish and Swedish Seafood. The Bocuse d’Or Europe is the last leg before the grand final. It was held as part of the GastroNord trade exhibition at Stockholm, in Sweden on 7th and 8th May 2014.
The crème de la crème in European gastronomy was present to cheer the candidates of the 2014 edition presided over by Swedish chef Mathias Dahlgren. But the 12 chefs selected are already preparing for the final of the contest that will be held as part of the Sirha 2015 trade exhibition in Lyon. The European candidates will now need to face 12 other chefs from all over the world, also selected as the result of continental selection events or thanks to the Wild Cards. However, only one of them will be awarded the Bocuse d’Or and the ultimate title of best cook of the world!
