Bocuse d'Or Europe
On May 28th and 29th , 2020, the Bocuse d’Or Europe will be held for the first time at the Saku Arena in Tallinn, Estonia, with the aim of determining the 10 nations that will earn a ticket to participate in the world grand finale to be held in Lyon in January 2021.
Estonia is still relatively little known on the international gastronomy scene.

In choosing the city of Tallinn, the Bocuse d’Or asserts its motivation to open up to new territories and cuisines from around the planet.
After a series of national rounds that are held in the respective countries, the Bocuse d’Or Europe is the next and penultimate stage for chefs to qualify for the grand finale and try and win the much coveted title of best chef in the world. A total of 20 participants have been selected for this 7th European edition, an event in which the teams will need to outdo themselves.
This is a unique experience for the participants who will have to call upon their excellent cooking skills and demonstrate a keen sense of aesthetics, originality, and creativity in order to convince and draw the attention of the judges. Professionalism and technical skills at their best, the participants are required to perform two separate tests in precisely 5 hours and 35 minutes.
