Article: Bocuse 2013 winners.

It was an exciting two days at the 2013 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 the epic event. 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-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!
