The 2020 European qualifying contest – the Bocuse d’Or Europe – will be held in Tallinn in Estonia. The event will bring together 20 of the European countries that have entered the contest. Only the top 10 will earn a place to represent their countries in the grand finale in Lyon.
Estonia has been taking part in the Bocuse d’Or for ten years already, under the leadership of Dimitri Demjanov, an emblematic figure of Estonian gastronomy who has dedicated much effort to the contest since its creation. Little known today on the international culinary scene, Estonia has a rich gastronomy and age-old know-how. Its international ambition is strong. For its first participation in 2009, the country surprised the jury with a performance that landed it in the top of the ranking.
See you in Tallinn!
