Exclusive partner of Culinary Olympics


Only the best for the best! When it comes down to it, you have to be able to rely on your partners.

And that’s what we are – a reliable partner! MKN Premium Cooking Technology stands for quality & reliability. As an exclusive partner, we will once again equip the IKA/Culinary Olympics with professional thermal cooking technology.

In this competition, it is the best team performance that counts – a team composed of its members and the cooking technology. Therefore, we see ourselves as a partner who gets the best out of the participating chefs in the competition.

As a team member – as a friend.


An event of superlatives

1,800 chefs from 67 country teams are expected as well as around 100,000 visitors from all over the world, who can look forward to 8,000 cooked menus. The teams will compete in different disciplines. For example, 29 national teams will cook a 3-course menu for 110 people in the Restaurant of Nations. The 24 youth national teams have to manage a 3-course menu for 70 people and the community catering teams a lunch menu for 120 people. The evaluation includes not only fast, professional and precise work, but also aspects such as hygiene, kitchen organization, food waste, presentation and, of course, taste.
