Greetings,

The 2013 Bocuse d'Or spoiled us once again! It's always been an exquisite celebration of the art of cooking, but this year it amazed us with the phenomenal technical and creative prowess of the chefs, who came from 24 countries after long months of preparation. The new regulations brought a touch of novelty with a fish theme that had to be more improvised and presented on a plate. For those who grasped what this liberty entailed, this "premiere" was a chance to excel.

We're delighted to welcome the three new prizewinners, who will boost the ranks of the BOCUSE D'OR WINNERS family! We present them below and once again you will see that personality is a big factor in their success.

That's no coincidence: an open mind, curiosity, determination, work, perseverance!

Sincerely yours,

Michel Roth, Bocuse d'Or 1991, President of Bocuse d'Or Winners

Thibaut Ruggeri, Bocuse d'Or 2013

 

At the age of 12, Thibaut decided that he was going to be a cook! That was his dream; a dream largely inspired by Paul Bocuse's book: "La cuisine du marché", which he was constantly leafing through and which was right in line with his desire to pass down the French culinary heritage. Read more

Jeppe FOLDAGER, Bocuse d'argent 2013

Born one January 1st, maybe that special entry into life gave Jeppe the energy that's so palpable when you talk to him. And his mother doubtless played a role too. She was a cook in retirement homes and was quick to immerse him in the pleasures of steaming, aromatic saucepans. Read more

Noriyuki HAMADA, Bocuse de bronze 2013

Let there be no doubt, Noriyuki Hamada has personality! He approaches life head-on, fully aware of what it can offer him if he puts the effort in. He didn't just adopt his haircut from the Samurai, but also one of their key precepts: tenacity. Read more

And the winner is... Kristian Curtis
