The Bocuse d’Or is an international cooking contest that was founded by French chef Paul Bocuse in January 1987. 24 chefs from 24 countries take part, after winning the knock-out rounds in their respective countries.
The final international round will take place in Lyon on 29 and 30 January 2013, during the SIRHA tradeshow, where the chefs will compete for the Bocuse d’Or trophy.
