Four teams of elite chefs will whip up iconic dishes from four continents to impress a star-studded jury panel. Each of the teams will be given one hour to prepare a three-course menu, across the two legs of the competition. The team that will cook the best dishes with the most sustainable ingredients and innovative food preparation methods will be crowned the 2nd GICL Continent Winner!
This years’ focus is not just on regional cuisine. The chefs will be judged also on the innovation and sustainability of their dishes with 30% out of the judging criteria focusing on sustainable ingredients and cooking techniques along with a zero wastage policy.
New installations such as the hydroponic vertical kitchen and new generation ingredients such as crickets powder and plant-based meat will be available to the chefs for the first time in a real culinary competition. This is a strong signal that those ingredients are now a real opportunity for the fine dining industry to change in favor of a more sustainable food chain supply.
