Minho, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2016
“I dream of having my own pastry shop, based on bringing back traditional sweets from my region that have always existed but no one knows about.”
Beatriz Coelho is the young talent that will represent Minho, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2016 at the European Young Chef Award 2022.
Beatriz is a 17-year-old student of the Technical Course in Cooking/Pastry at ETAP Professional School in Vila Praia de Âncora. She did her first internship in Portugal, in a 4-star hotel, and in the 3rd year of the course, she took an internship in Malta, in a hotel that also worked with catering.
Since she was a child, she has always loved being in the kitchen, helping her mother cooking and practicing recipes she saw in YouTube videos.
She appreciated that the European Young Chef Award gave her the chance to meet new people from the world of gastronomy and acquire new knowledge.
