Worldchefs will be at the Bocuse d’Or 2019 Grand Finale ! 


Worldchefs takes you on a history trip of the Bocuse d’Or!


In January 1987, Paul Bocuse created the Bocuse d’Or, a revolutionary gastronomy contest. Replicating the codes of major sporting events, he imagined a true show placing the emphasis on cooking and on the chefs. It takes place at the heart of Sirha, a professional tradeshow dedicated to food service and gastronomy in Lyon, France.

The idea: to bring together 24 young chefs from all over the world, among the most promising talents of their generation, and have them prepare superb dishes within 5 hours 35 minutes, live before an enthusiastic audience. To decide between them: a jury composed of the most illustrious chefs of the planet.

To decide between them: a jury composed of the most illustrious chefs of the planet.

30 years after its creation, faced with the increasing number of nations who want to take part in the prestigious contest, the Bocuse d’Or inaugurated in 2007 the concept of pre-selection events by introducing the continental events: Bocuse d’Or Europe, Bocuse d’Or Latin America and Bocuse d’Or Asia, that became Bocuse d’Or Asia-Pacific in 2014 and now includes Australia.

 

These events are actual continental finals and aim to select the 24 countries that will reach the prestigious final. The Bocuse d’Or award is given at the end of the grande finale which takes place every two years in January during Sirha in Lyon. More than an isolated event, the Bocuse d’Or now features nearly sixty national and continental contests over a two-year cycle, all leading to the culmination in the world final that is invariably held in Lyon, France.
