BAKING IS MY LIFE! GÜNTHER KOERFFER… A WORLD RENOWNED PERSONALITY!
Günther Koerffer, CEBP President in Sweden, as well as the rest of the Nordic countries, President of the European Bakers and Pastry Chefs, President of Welt and an official Ambassador of Taste for the Global Gastronomy® 2022 representing Sweden and the whole world of taste.
“My long-lasting route gives me an insight into how bakeries and confectioneries look different in context of manufacturing products and range. I've made a lot of personal friendships and I'm so privileged to explore and enjoy the finest tastes the world has to offer…
In my country we eat lots of meat, nice fish, and enjoy the wildlife from the forest. Due to the cold climate, we eat coarser bread, with rye whole grains and oats. Strong dishes usually organic. Our clean air and water guarantee the highest quality. We have berries, mushrooms and fruit that are only found here in Sweden! These are perfect for cakes, ice cream and dessert!”
