Heidi Bjerkan – Special Mention

One of Norway’s culinary figures, this chef advocates an innovative restaurant model characterised by her special relationship with farmers in the Trondheim area; an intrinsic part of the team that makes her renowned Credo restaurant possible. In 2017, this former chef of the Norwegian royal family launched Vippa, a work and training space for small entrepreneurs, which focuses on immigrants and young Norwegians. In their stands, Vippa participants cook and serve their dishes to an essentially young audience who come to enjoy a multicultural space.
