BORA is looking for the German amateur master chef

BORA, Johann Lafer and TEUBNER Verlag are looking for the ‘German amateur master chef’

Raubling. In 2015, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, manufacturer of innovative cooktop extractors, is launching its inaugural ‘German amateur master chef’ competition. In doing so, it is partnering with popular celebrity  chef Johan Lafer, whose fame extends far beyond Germany, and TEUBNER Verlag, the prestigious publishing house known for its premium-quality cookbooks.

Ambitious talents from Germany, Austria and Switzerland can put their favourite home-made recipes to the test until 31 May 2015 by submitting them at www.bora-deutschermeister.de. In doing so, imagination has almost free rein. The only constraint is that entrants must create a three-course menu using six ingredients from a set shopping basket. The judges, BORA founder Willi Bruckbauer, celebrity chef Johann Lafer and TEUBNER Verlag CEO Bernhard Kellner, will choose their favourite contestants, who will get the chance to demonstrate their culinary skills at the final in Raubling in October. In addition to receiving the title ‘German amateur master chef 2015’ and having his/her recipe printed in a TEUBNER cookbook, the winner will also enjoy a spectacular experience: a flight over the Middle Rhine Valley with Johann Lafer in his private helicopter followed by a gourmet barbecued picnic with the Lafer kitchen team. The second and third place runners-up will get to enjoy an evening with a BORA private chef in a group of up to six people, while those who come fourth through to thirtieth can look forward to great prizes from BORA or the knife book from TEUBNER.
