The Bocuse d`Or, which is arranged every second year, is one of the world’s most prestigious cooking competitions and is frequently referred to as the culinary equivalent of the Olympic Games. This year Norway is represented by Ørjan Johannessen. Due to Ørjan Johannessen gold medal from Bocuse d`Or Europe in March 2012, Norway is expected to be one of the favorites. Norway has won Bocuse d`Or 4times since its start in 1987.
Eker Design created Ørjans platters for the European Championship, and now also for the World Championship at Sirha in Lyon. Eker Design was selected as the preferred design company for the Norwegian stand at the Bocuse d`Or. In cooperation with Gastronomisk Institutt and Måltidets Hus in Stavanger we have been responsible for designing the complete stand from idea to building it on site in Lyon. Ergonomics, purchase, logistics, selection of sub suppliers and quality control are some of the main work areas involved in this process.
We are also proud to announce that this is a Norwegian product where many of the parts has been produced by our inhouse CNC machine and our metal work shop. All graphical work has been designed and prepared for printing inhouse at Eker Design.
We at Eker Design wish Ørjan Johannessen and Norway the best for Bocuse d`Or 2013!
