Bocuse d’Or 2013 winners announced

In 1987, Chef Paul Bocuse established the Bocuse d’Or World Cuisine Contest to broaden the public’s understanding of the extraordinary dedication, hard work, practice and precision required to execute the finest cuisine. The Bocuse d’Or is the world’s most rigorous culinary competition, held every two years in Lyon, France. Twenty-four countries compete; each country’s team is comprised of one chef and one commis assistant. Each team has five-and-a-half hours to prepare two platter presentations: one seafood and one meat dish, each accompanied by three elaborate garnishes.

Chef Richard Rosendale of The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, represented the United States along with his commis Corey Siegel. The two went through an intensive training process as they prepared for the Bocuse d’Or. Chef Rosendale was mentored by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Chefs Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Jerome Bocuse, and Team USA coaches Chefs Gavin Kaysen (head coach), Grant Achatz, and Gabriel Kreuther. credit:
