Salon Culinaire Mondial 2013 announces its winners and once again shows its commitment to excellence
At the renowned Salon Culinaire Mondial team-cooking competition, ten national teams with more than 60 members, 17 regional teams with 118 members, 72 individual visitors and dozens of helpers competed virtually round-the-clock for medals and titles in the categories of “Culinary Art” and “Pastry Art” as well as in the hot show kitchen. It frequently happened that the chefs were on their feet for more than 30 hours at a time in a bid to provide visitors to the fair and the 22-strong jury with a show of superlatives – something which they certainly succeeded in doing.
Even before the competition started, it was clear that the race for the podium positions would be a very close one. The jury thus had its work cut out accordingly. The jury rewarded the performance of the Culinary National Team of Hong Kong with two gold medals and thus selected it as the overall winner – the “Culinary World Master”. The national team from Switzerland came second, while third place went to Team Singapore.
As one of the organizers, the World Association of Chefs Societies led by WORLDCHEFS President Gissur Gudmundsson closely observed the entire event and gave its support to all the competitors. Before the prizes were announced, WORLDCHEFS President expressed his deepest satisfaction regarding the organization and great talent, which was presented by the participants at this year Salon Culinaire Mondial.
