Show 18, February 23, 2013: Richard Rosendale, Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage, The Greenbrier, West Virginia &amp Bocuse d’Or USA Captain 2013

Richard Rosendale of the Greenbrier Resort in Sulphur Springs West VirginiaChef 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.

Chef Rosendale and his commis, Corey Siegel, spent a year training every day for this prestigious competition. A duplicate of their kitchen in Lyon was created at The Greenbrier to practice in.

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!
