Many of Sweden’s leading chefs will be attending the fair in connection with the new Chef of the Year area, which is being arranged in partnership with the Chef of the Year Association. Six previous winners of the title will be putting together the restaurant and the menu. The starters will be created by Fredrik Eriksson, winner in 1986, and Tommy Myllymäki, Chef of the Year 2007. Tom Sjöstedt, Chef of the Year 2008, Robert Nilsson, Chef of the Year 1998, Klas Lindberg, Chef of the Year 2012 and Markus Aujalay, winner in 2004, will create the main courses. The deserts will come courtesy of honorary member Magnus Johansson.
The Chef of the Year bistro will offer simpler dishes on the theme “Flavours of Sweden”, devised by Andreas Hedlund, Chef of the Year 2002.
The chefs and industry representatives will also be talking about gastronomic developments in Sweden during the 29 years of the competition. The moderators will be Christian Hellberg, Robert Nilsson and Andreas Hedlund, all winners of the Chef of the Year title, and Hanna Halpern, CEO of the Swedish Restaurant Academy and head of the Chef of the Year competition.
GastroNord and Vinordic are Northern Europe’s biggest trade fairs for hotels, restaurants, catering and fast food. The fairs are held every other year at Stockholmsmässan.
