    There was a gold for the Swedish Culinary Team in the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt Germany. Four of the chefs in the eleven-strong team representing Sweden are active at different restaurants in Gothenburg and West Sweden.


    Sweden competed against 36 national teams from around the world, with a total of nearly 1,300 chefs and pastry chefs. The competition has two parts - the cold table and the warm kitchen. The jury tastes only the hot kitchen, while the cold table is judged on appearance and recipes. In the hot kitchen 110 pieces of three-course menus are prepared. A hot appetizer with fish or seafood, a main course with meat, game and poultry, and a dessert with fruit.

    A strong race effort resulted in Swedish victory in both categories. Also the Swedish Junior Culinary Team won Olympic gold.
    - What we have achieved is unique, no other nation has taken a Grand Slam in the Olympics before, says the coach Krister Dahl.

    Here are the four West Swedes chefs in the team:

    Krister Dahl, coach, Gothenburg (38 years), the one who has been longest in the Culinary Team (starting from 1994). Krister is the operations manager at Gothia Towers where he recently opened the restaurant West Coast.

    Jesper Bogren, Gothenburg (29 years), head chef at Swedish Taste, in the team since 2009.

    Patrik Fredriksson, Gothenburg (30 years) Head Pastry Chef at Hotel Clarion Post, in the team since 2007.

    Fredrik Hedlund, Munkedal (30 years) chef on Marstrands Havshotell, in the team since 2005.
