Croatian chefs win six bronze medals at the World Culinary Cup
The Croatian culinary team was decorated with six bronze medals at the Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg, one of the most prestigious culinary competitions in the world, which was held as part of the International Fair of Gastronomy, Expogast. The event was attended by one thousand chefs from 53 countries.

The Croatian team was led by the renowned chef Branko Ognjenović, the head chef at Zagreb`s Bon Appetit restaurant. The Croatian team consisted of two regional teams – the culinary team of Zagreb and Varaždin and Međimurje County and the culinary team of Dalmatia. Along with them, the individual part of the competition was attended by three other representatives from Croatia - Brajko Kaja from ‘Franja’ catering in Samobor, Alen Mančev from ‘Bota Šare’ restaurant in Split and Davor Marinović from ‘Nostromo’ restaurant, also from Split.

The team won the bronze for their preparation of a restaurant three course menu for a hundred persons, consisting of a fish hors d`oeuvre (sea bass roll, salmon, scallops), the main course (stuffed quail, chicken roll) and a chestnut and quince dessert. Together with their regional teams, the members of the national team achieved success in the preparation of cold dishes. Brajko Kaja and Davor Marinović were also decorated with bronze medals in the individual category.

On the cold dish table of the Croatian team the jury was presented with a number of chosen themed dishes: vegetarian, gourmet menu, cold finger food, a snack plate, creative desserts and more.

Cold dished were judged by appearance, creativity, the quality of gelling and serving, and the restaurant menus, among other things by preparation, taste, appearance and serving of the dishes.
