YUMM Festival Kirchberg : stages
Firstly, ten finalists will be selected. The criteria are :
- originality of the culinary offer
- quality of the ingredients and presentation of the dishes
- ability to manage significant peaks in customer demand
- creativity and originality in truck presentation
- strong visual identity
- expression of environmental awareness in equipment used, dishes offered and independent waste management will be an advantage
In a cosy, convivial street party atmosphere, visitors will be invited from the 25-27 September to taste the dishes specially prepared by the food truck managers and their teams, and to elect the best through a voting system on the event site.
To slake their thirst, visitors will be spoilt for choice: the YUMM Festival Kirchberg will offer a cocktail bar – in collaboration with the Melià restaurant, a gin bar – in collaboration with the Tempo restaurant, and a wine bar – in collaboration with the Table du Belvédère restaurant.
On Friday, 27th September, the presentation of prizes will bring the event to a close. The winner will gain the title of “Yumm Festival Kirchberg public choice”, which automatically entitles them to take part in the 2020 YUMM Festival Kirchberg event.
Culinary skill will not be the only thing in the limelight. A variety of activities will make this inaugural festival an inclusive, multicultural, family event.
An avid cook since childhood, Nina seized the opportunity to start a new career. She fulfilled her dream… and more: she already proudly owns two trucks! Her secret? Inspired by the Italian cuisine she revisits the great classic recipes. A good example is her famous burger with green-white-red sauce, which she likes to prepare on the spot in front of customers.
Why participate in the YUMM Festival Kirchberg? Nina looks forward to returning to Luxembourg where she was pleasantly surprised to find many gourmet lovers with the most demanding of palates. The other two things that convinced her to participate were the professional aspect of the competition and the chance to meet other chefs and professional caterers.
Her strongest asset? Carefully selected products that offer the best flavour. These products help to bring out the incredible flavours in each of her dishes, adding a little sunshine to her plates.
Her truck? Totally integrated with the concept, the truck’s design is inspired by Italy’s Commedia dell’Arte, but is above all a reflection of a festive, happy event.
