Few other things have the ability to bring people together and create shared experiences like sports and food do. Our KochCup combines the two to draw attention to the importance of shifting toward healthier and more sustainable diets. The project wants to use the momentum of the European Men’s Football Championship, taking place from 14 June to 14 July 2024, to spread inspiration and ignite action on making healthy and sustainable food the norm.

As part of the project, chef trainees across Germany were invited to join a cooking contest and create innovative, healthy, tasty, and sustainable recipes. After months of local and regional cooking competitions between young chefs, in March 2024, the KochCup project awarded three winning recipes at the competition’s final in Berlin, Germany.

The twelve best recipes, following the criteria of being seasonal, regional, and resource-efficient on top of offering a unique culinary experience are now collected in e-cookbook that is available to download here. Through the recipes in this book, the young chefs aim to spark inspiration toward healthier and more sustainable good in the realm of sports and beyond.

“In my job, I experience every day how important a balanced, plant-based diet is. It is not only a basic prerequisite for a good sportive performance, but also for general well-being and, of course, for a climate-friendly lifestyle. Sustainable cooking should therefore be an essential part of cookery training and trainees should be motivated to develop creatively in this area and make healthy and resource-friendly nutrition tangible to people.”, says Anton Schmaus, patron of the KochCup and chef of the German Men’s National Football Team.
