IKA/Culinary Olympics 2012 - Gourmet Summit with Records
Boost for the gastronomic trade fair inoga(PresseBox) ( Erfurt, )
35 national teams, 25 national youth teams, 8 national military teams and 4 patissier teams and 14 teams from catering establishments, more than 350 media representatives, 1,800 contesting cooks from all over the world in a total of 22 kitchens, 1,800 seats in the restaurants in the halls and nearly 10,000 freshly prepared and served menus on four trade fair days. In addition to this 51 regional teams and 536 individual exhibitors will also be presenting masterly creations. 50 carving artists will enthuse the general public with their creations in the Premiere Competition 'vegetable carving live'. It is therefore certain that the IKA/Culinary Olympics is a truly superb event.
Gastronomy trade fair is buzzing
Its combination with the Culinary Olympics has also given the accompanying gastronomy trade fair, inoga, a big boost. With 250 exhibitors and approximately 23,000 visitors, it is one of the established platforms for the gastronomy sector. In addition to exhibitors from all over Germany, companies from Austria, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, France and Switzerland are also coming to Erfurt. Numerous new sponsors of the IKA will also be presenting themselves to the interested visitors and to chefs from all over the world with their own stands.
New to the cooker: Guatemala, India and Mexico
Guatemala and India are attending the IKA for the first time with national youth teams. Mexico is also attending the event for the first time with a national team. Individual exhibitors from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are also taking part. Also of interest are the regional teams such as the German team, the Euroturk Chefs from Berlin, and the Canadian Aboriginal Culinary Team, who are likely to attract considerable interest at the plate presentation for their Kanata Cuisine.
