The Gastronomy Show
AWARDS AND COMPETITIONS
Gastronomic Forum Barcelona 2021 Chef Award
Since 2009, the Gastronomic Forum Barcelona Chef Award has highlighted the work of emerging chefs who offer quality culinary proposals that use local products, make sustainable cuisine and disseminate these values. Six candidates, preselected by a specialist jury, will cook a dish that identifies them and summarises their cooking at a live show.
These awards recognise innovation in gastronomy. They include four categories: most innovative product, most creative packaging, the most original flavour and, in this edition, as an important new feature, the most sustainable product.
Josep Mercader Awards
RECOGNITION FOR THE BEST CAREER
Awards that recognise the professional trajectory of chefs, enologists, head waiters, producers and disseminators of Catalan culinary culture.
In partnership with:
The Best Dessert – Espai Sucre
This space has become an unmissable appointment for professional dessert and pastry chefs, with the aim of promoting restaurant pastries. Six candidates will compete for the award for the best Restaurant Dessert & Pastry Chef and the Valhrona Award for the Best Restaurant Chocolate Dessert, 2021.
5th Spanish Panettone Championship
The event’s participants will submit their panettones to the verdict of a jury who will assess the appearance, cut, smell, texture, honeycomb structure and flavour of this typical Christmas Milanese sweetbread.
All the activities organised by Gastronomic Forum Barcelona will be free of charge for all professional visitors to the event.
