    Ok it is ok....

    Everything You Wanted to Know About the Bocuse d’Or Competition But Were Afraid to Ask

    Fascinated by the news that Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud are heading up Team USA in the Bocuse d’Or contest, we reached out to Boulud HQ today to find out some details on how the contest works.

    • Neither Thomas Keller nor Daniel Boulud will judge the contest, but they will select teams to compete in the trials. Right now, Boulud is sending out applications to all Michelin-starred restaurants in America, as well as Relais & Chateau (another important guide) listees, recent Beard-award winners, and the top Zagat-rated restaurants in every major U.S. city. Eight teams will be selected by mid-July.

    The U.S. team trials will be at Orlando's Epcot Center on September 26 and 27. The judges will be drawn from both Team USA’s advisory board and a four-person media panel composed of Martha Stewart, Dana Cowin of Food & Wine, Barbara Fairchild at Bon Appétit, and Ruth Reichl at Gourmet. Think those are big names? The chef committee is a Who’s Who of American gastronomy: Mario Batali, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, Jacques Pepin, André Soltner, Charlie Trotter, and so on. After these judges, the cheftestants will be intimidation-proof.

    • If the judges aren’t tough enough, the actual judging criteria is bewilderingly intricate. This is no Taste-Presentation-Originality baking contest. According to the application, each dish has to be prepared both as a platter and in individual plates, and then is reviewed for, among other things, originality, creativity, texture, seasoning, “harmony and sophistication,” cleanliness, staff performance, efficiency, timing, and “complexity and detail.” Whoa!

    • Applicants aren’t limited to those invited by Boulud. If you think you have the stuff to represent the U.S. in the so-called cooking Olympics, just fill out the application, send it in to Bocuse d'Or USA, and cross your fingers. You might be the one who brings the glory back home.

    Will the public be able to watch this go on? Where in Epcot is it held?

    As far as I understand right now there will be an area for public exhibition. As far as the amount, and how you will get to view I think that is still TBD

    very cool!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Cool Eric. Keep us posted as to whether the public will be able to watch and if there will be an additional charge to do so.
