Time to revisit the progress of Team USA competing in the Bocuse d’Or International Culinary Competition at the end of the month (January 29 & 30) in Lyon, France. Team USA is defending “The Gold” from the 2017 competition. Chef Robert Sulatycky is the Head Coach for Team USA 2019. Team USA 2019’s Head Chef is Matthew Kirkley and his Commis is Mimi Chen.
Chef Robert Sulatycky has a long history with the Bocuse d’Or. Representing Canada in 1999, he placed fourth and was awarded the “Prix Viande,” or best meat prize. He has since mentored both Canadian and American chef candidates and was honored to be a member of the international jury for the 2007 and 2013 editions of the competition. He also served as Assistant Coach for Bocuse d’Or Team USA 2017, who won the first-ever gold medal for the United States.
Based on the draw Team USA will compete on the first day, January 29th.
Chef Robert rejoins us continuing his update on the long road to Lyon.
