The World Grill and Barbecue Champion 2011 is Christoph Gollenz. Together with his team Goli & Chef Partie from Austria, he convinced the expert judges at the 2011 World BBQ Championship which was sponsored by the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA) and held last weekend in Gronau in Germany.
In excess of 100,000 visitors enjoyed watching the professional teams display their skills at the grill across the full range of BBQ disciplines. For all the teams aluminium foil was an essential part of creative barbecuing and practical preparation of the various barbecue dishes.
The 73 teams from all over the world used over 52 km of household foil supplied by Hydro and ITS Foil and were pleased with the excellent quality helping them to use less meters than usual. Also the meals for the judges were exclusively served in alufoil trays and containers supplied by Bachmann Aluminium.
Throughout the event the household foil and the foil containers were collected for recycling to ensure that the aluminium stays in the aluminium material loop.
