Douglas Yokomi Fornari - joint first prize
Douglas’s dish was entitled “Over the edges”. It comprised of 4 elements: a caramel syrup dice; a goats cheese foam; an Iberian ham crisp and a balsamic vinegar gel.

Maria Grazzia Peña Niebuhr - second prize
Maria created a 3D savoury present (gift) with a completely innovative flavour and shape that did not mimic any existing dish. It included dietary fibre and pea protein isolate. The flavour was that of a mixture of vegetables and popular ingredients like cheese and eggs.

Eléonore Boisseau - third prize
Eléonore created “An ocean breeze”. The idea behind it was to have a lemon-ginger meringue cube representing a rock next to the ocean, with the foam from the ocean represented by a lobster cream, and vibrant coral tuiles representing the coral from the water.
