Meet Vic Tosseram, European Young Chef Award 2019 finalist from North Brabant, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2018
“I would describe myself as a learning cooking enthusiast who is always looking for new exciting flavours” claims Vic Tosseram, the young chef finalist who will represent North Brabant, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2018 at the European Young Chef Award 2019 in Rhodes (South Aegean, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2019) on 22-24 October 2019.
Vic is a 22-year-old student in his final year at De Rooi Pannen cooking school. During his studies, he has had the chance to broaden his cooking knowledge through some learning experiences in different restaurants.
He likes to experience moments and flavours he has never had before, because he loves the feeling of trying something new and fresh.
Interested in music and travelling, Vic is an aspiring chef with very clear ambitions: “I want to be a game changer and do something unique. I want to inspire others, just like the chefs around me and my grandmother do. My dream is to be a Michelin-starred chef of a very nice restaurant. Maybe even my own restaurant!”
The European Young Chef Award 2019 is a competition organised and promoted by the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism (IGCAT) in collaboration with South Aegean, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2019.
The European Young Chef Award gathers finalists of regional contests from around Europe to present and exchange knowledge about traditional dishes and local food products from their regions and then compete proposing their innovative reinterpretation of traditional recipes, judged by star chefs and international experts.
