Bocuse d'or

The most important competition for Gourmet Chefs is the prestigious Bocuse d'Or in Lyon, France. The last competition took place during January 2005.

Bocuse d'Or was founded by the best living chef, Paul Bocuse himself. Each year the competition has become larger and more notable. The atmosphere at this competition is like at a baseball game. Several thousand fans are cheering their teams. Here you find some photos.
