 World Cup of chefs
 Ørjan Johannessen

Norway and Ørjan Johannessen clinched this year´s gold medal in the Bocuse d´Or – a contest often dubbed the World Cup of chefs. France faced gastronomic humiliation after it failed to make the podium on home soil in what is considered the world´s premier cooking championship. Johannessen, with a background as a chef for Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri and Mathuset Solvold, he was coached by previous bronze Bocuse d´Or medallist Odd Ivar Solvold and his commis was Jimmy Øien.

Bekkjarvik is located on the northeastern coast of the island of Selbjørn. The village is an old trading post, with an inn that has been in operation since the 1600s. There was also a barrel factory. Today, the inn is still in operation and most of the economy centers around the seasonal fishing industry. Bekkjarvik Church has been located in this village since 1895. The Selbjørn Bridge runs from Bekkjarvik across a small strait to the nearby island of Huftarøy.
