Congratulations to the Winners of the Bocuse d’Or 2013

It was an exciting two days at the Bocuse d’Or culinary competition in Lyon France. As passionate fans roared with support,  24 exceptional chefs from all over the globe prepared their dishes during the five and a half hours elite gastronomic competition. We were fortunate enough to attend…

This year France’s Thibaut Ruggeri of Maison Lenôtre, won first place and took home the golden Bocuse d’Or statue. Silver was awarded to Denmark’s Jeppe Foldager of Søllerød Kro Holte, and Japan’s Noriyuki Hamada of Hotel Bleston Court took home the bronze.

Although USA’s Richard Rosendale, executive chef and food and beverage director of West Virginia’s Greenbrier resort placed seventh, he was proud of the team’s efforts. With Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud behind the training program, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the next USA contestants.

Congratulations Chefs for your outstanding work!

2013 Bocuse d'Or Winners: 2nd Jeppe Foldager, Denmark; 1st Thibaut Ruggeri, France; 3rd Noriyuki Hamada, Japan
