This evening’s Head Chef – Christian André Pettersen

He won Chef of the year 2017, and thus became Norway’s representative in Bocuse D’or Europe 2018. There he brought home the gold, together with his team, consisting of commis Håvard André Josdal Østebø and coach Gunnar Hvarnes. In January 2019 he took bronze in the Bocuse D’or in Lyon. Standing at the top of the pallet here has been Christian André’s goal since the age of nine, which is why he threw himself into a new round. In September 2019 this resulted in him again standing at the top of the pallet under the Chef of the Year, together with his team consisting of commis Håvard André Josdal Østebø and coach Gunnar Hvarnes, and thus will represent Norway in Bocuse D`or Europe 2020 and Bocuse D`or Lyon 2021.
