The sous chef and commis of Budapest's Michelin-starred Stand Restaurant have come in second place at the 2022 Bocuse d'Or Europe, the continental qualifier for the international Bocuse d'Or gastronomy contest, behind the Danish team, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Sous chef Bence Dalnoki and commis Patrik Nyikos were ranked with 16 other international teams at the contest which took place in the framework of the Sirha food and catering exhibition in Budapest.
Dalnoki told MTI the team had tried to "draw the most from the ingredients, developing each one to perfection".
He also acknowledged the contribution to the win of Tamás Széll and Szabina Szulló, his colleagues at Stand Restaurant.
"The fact that we're a tight team and, naturally, their professional knowledge and knowledge of the Bocuse d'Or meant a lot" he said.
Széll won the 2016 Bocuse d'Or Europe which Hungary also hosted.
Dalnoki and Nyikos will compete in the Bocuse d'Or finals in Lyon in 2023.
