The public of the Eurexpo exhibition center sang the Marseillaise after the announcement of the result.
Denmark and Norway complete the podium
The silver Bocuse was awarded to Denmark and the bronze one to Norway.
For two days, 21 teams – three had to give up coming because of health constraints – were competing in two events.
They proposed to a jury of chefs from all over the world a platter around the beef chuck and, an unprecedented event, a box comprising three dishes – a starter, a main course, a dessert – on a variation of cherry tomato.
The chefs’ world cup
“The level rises with each edition”, welcomed the president of the competition, Jérôme Bocuse, the son of the legendary “Monsieur Paul”, who died in 2018. “Even on a simple product like the cherry tomato, there are some extraordinary things”, he added.
The podium of the previous edition (2019) was entirely Scandinavian. The Bocuse d’or was won by the Danish Kenneth Toft-Hansen, the silver by the Swede Sebastian Gibrand and the bronze by the Norwegian Christian André.
Created in 1987 by Paul Bocuse, this competition, a sort of chefs’ world cup, takes place every two years on the occasion of Sirha.
