Chef Rosendale represented the United States late last month at the Bocuse d’Or culinary competition in Lyon, France. It’s held every other year and is considered the pinnacle of international cooking competitions. The chefs have an intense five-and-one half hours to prepare a dazzling meat platter and a plated fish course which is then judged by an international panel of respected chefs.
Team USA had a sizeable rooting section cheering them on in Lyon. Thomas Keller is the Bocuse d’Or USA foundation’s President and he was in Lyon, too. USA placed a respectable 7th Place which was in the upper third of the competitors.
Congratulations to Chef Rosendale for an incredible effort!
