Designing a platter for Bocuse d'Or
At this year's Bocuse d'Or, the world's most prestigious chef competition, the Finnish team won the special platter prize and came in fourth overall, qualifying them for the finals in Lyon in January 2019.
National teams from Norway, Sweden and Denmark took the top three places. For Aalto Department of Design students Laura Meriluoto and Klaudia Kasprzak, the night was also a victory: they designed the plates and platters upon which the food was served. Finland's Bocuse d'Or representative is chef Ismo Sipeläinen.
It was the first time the Finnish Bocuse d'Or competition team co-operated with Aalto University students.
