The way Blitzkochen worked was that each week, regional teams of four top local chefs competed to establish which one of them would represent their region. Eight regions in total, each represented by a big city, thus: Hamburg, Hannover, Berlin, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich.
The 8 winning chefs would then compete to determine who would cook the starter, fish course, main course and dessert at the grand banquet. They all wanted to cook one of them, but the best prize was to cook the main course.
Horst had no doubt that his ‘Wurstravaganza’ would be chosen.
