The culinary fiesta was held under the slogan Schrödinger's Fish. Approximately 50 students - cooks from the English and Bulgarian Training Programmes took part in the competition, mixing a variety of seafood, which was a top secret for them till the beginning of the event. Sea bass, sea bream and prawns - these were just few of the delicacies that inspired the participants in the preparation of their virtuoso dishes.

Chef Petrov himself was extremely impressed with the creativity and the balance of dishes, and he even asked the participants for a couple of recipes. The event went on with a great deal of humour and high spirits, and finally the whole audience got the opportunity to enjoy the delicious dishes of the participants.
