Category JOBS:

The Chef Duel (Camilla Andersson Sparring)


In Sweden there is a shortage of 5,000 trained cooks and at the same time fewer and fewer young people are applying for this job. The cooking duel initiated by Camilla Sparring has significantly increased the interest in becoming a cook. In 2018, cooking duels were already organised in 7 Swedish communities, in which 2,500 pupils took part.
