Øyvind Bøe Dalelv walked off with the championship when NM in culinary arts was held in Trondheim this week.
After two days of cooking at Trondheim Spektrum, he received the Royal Cup on Thursday during a banquet at Scandic Nidelven.
The former national chef who works at Statholdergaarden in Oslo, carried commis Runa Kvendseth.
Participants composed a three course menu for twelve people by using predetermined ingredients. They consisted partly of brie from Dovre, pork carré from Innherred and French Valrhona chocolate ganache.
Second place went to Marius Dragstad Kjeldsrud from Søllerød Kro in Copenhagen. Third place went to Lene Rabben Kjøde from Brasserie Blanche in Oslo.
“Øyvind Bøe Dalelv was unsurpassed best and delivered exciting and great tasting, exquisite technique and skills in the kitchen,” the jury said.
The main Referee was Danish Per Mandrup while space judge was Anne Dorthe Magnus Ask from Kokkenes Mesterlaug Rogaland.
