He put previously San Diego on the national culinary map during his much-praised tenure at El Bizcocho at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Fortunately for us he finds his way back to SoCal periodically to cook at very special fundraisers.
In his spare time he’s the Head Coach for Bocuse d’Or Team USA 2015. Chef Gavin has completed in this prestigious International Culinary Olympics and explains what the level of competition is all about. It’s a year, plus, of rigorous practice. The competition itself is two very intensive days and 24 countries complete. He’s been associated with the American efforts for the Bocuse d’Or for some nine years.
Chef Gavin accurately describes it as the World Series, Stanley Cup and Super Bowl of professional cooking. It’s every two years in Lyon, France.
Go Team USA in 2015!
