West is the reigning Viking of the week.
His ‘Vikings of the Weekend’ series, which features award-winning dishes from around the world, is now in its third year.
Chef danteboye West, a Dutchman who is based in the village of Dantebry, was presented with the Viking of Week Award by the Viking Society of New South Wales.
West, who also owns a restaurant in Sydney, said he was honoured to be recognised for his work.
“I am really proud that my food is still so popular around the globe and I am so grateful to everyone who loves it,” he said.
Chef West said he began his career in the late 1970s and later worked in restaurants across the globe, including London, Paris, Los Angeles and Miami.
He said the Viking experience taught him about his profession and how to do the best job possible.
“My favourite part of my Viking days was the Viking restaurant and how we would get to eat,” he added.
Chef Dantecoye said the awards ceremony had been held in honour of his father, who died in 2004.
He noted that the restaurant he was at in Dantabry was named after his father’s favourite Viking, the legendary Viking warrior Ragnar Lodbrok.
