Do you want to contribute to increased recruitment?

During the competition on March 19-20, 400 children will dominate the arena. A key goal of the hosting is to contribute to increased recruitment to food production, as well as the chef and waiter profession. As part of this, 20 school classes from 6th grade are invited to take part in an exciting program before and during the cooking competition.

The program is put together in close collaboration with Credo kompetansesenter and Heidi Bjerkan.
The various schools where the students come from will each be assigned a candidate from the various European teams participating, and each class will be a cheerleader for their country and their candidate.

The chef candidate from the respective countries will send a greeting to each class in advance on a video clip in English where he/she says a little about his/her country, its food culture and specialties.
