Culinary career

Eyvind Hellstrøm (born 2 December 1948 in Moss, Norway) is a chef and formerly the part owner of Bagatelle restaurant, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant in the city of Oslo.[1] He was the president of the 2008 Bocuse d'Or Europe, is frequently a judge at the Bocuse d'Or world finals, and was himself a competition candidate in 1989, placing fifth.[2]

In December 2009, Hellstrøm announced he would leave Bagatelle after 27 years, due to a long term conflict with majority owner Christen Sveaas.[3] Hellstrøm and the entire Bagatelle staff worked their final shift on 21 December.[4]

An author of several books, including Inn med sølvskje with Anne-Kat. Hærland, Hellstrøm also hosts the Norwegian TV3 television show Hellstrøm rydder opp, broadcast in 2008, 2009 and 2010, a Norwegian version of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.[5] Though initially criticized for playing the role excessively "nice",[6] the series featured its share of conflicts such as the episode devoted to the Trondheim sea food restaurant Fru Inger.[7] The programme was characterised as a "slaughter" of Fru Inger,[7] and shortly after the broadcast the restaurant was forced to close down.[8]

In 2010, Hellstrøm joined Tom Victor Gausdal and Jan Vardøen as judges on the TV3 version of the cooking challenge TV program MasterChef.[9]

In 2007 Hellstrøm was awarded the Knight, First Class of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav.[10]
