In January 1987, Paul Bocuse created the Bocuse d’Or, a revolutionary gastronomy contest. Replicating the codes of major sporting events, he imagined a true show placing the emphasis on cooking and on the chefs.
The idea: to bring together 24 young chefs from all over the world, among the most promising talents of their generation, and have them prepare superb dishes within 5 hours 35 minutes, live before an enthusiastic audience. To decide between them: a jury composed of the most illustrious chefs of the planet.
Chef Angus McIntosh was selected to participate in this prestigous event. He competed in December of 2015 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas for the honor to present the United States.
Chef Angus won bronze and his Commis Tyler Peer was awarded the Outstanding Commis of the competition.
