Four student chefs from Louisville’s Sullivan University are headed for Erfut, Germany, on Friday, to compete in the World Culinary Olympics.

Today they met with Mayor Greg Fischer, who wished the students a bon voyage, and remarked, “I can’t tell you how much I brag about out our city’s culinary activities.”

More than 16,000 chefs from around the world will compete in this year’s Culinary Olympics; an event which is held every four years.
