Entries open for Bocuse d’Or Australian Selection 2017
Australian chefs who wish to test their skills at the world’s most prestigious culinary competition are invited to enter the Bocuse d’Or Australian Selection, being held at Foodservice Australia in Melbourne on 30 May 2017.
The winner of the Australian Selection contest and their commis will represent Australia at the Bocuse d’Or Asia Pacific in 2018. If placed in the top five of this competition, they will go on to compete in Bocuse d’Or 2019 in Lyon, against 23 other teams from around the world.
To enter, chefs must hold an Australian passport and be 23 years or older by January 2019. They must submit an entry form at www.bocusedoraustralia.com.au and upload recipes and photos for two dishes using mandatory ingredients. Four chefs and their commis will be selected by a panel of chefs to battle for over five hours in front of a live audience to prepare these two courses.
Executive chef at Atlantic Group Tom Milligan, a previous Bocuse d’Or candidate and this year’s president, said that entering the Australian Selection is not for the faint-hearted. “It is a big commitment to training and competing over the next two years,” he warned.
“Therefore at the Australian Selection we are not just assessing the flair, flavour and presentation of their dishes; we are actually more interested in their composure under pressure, their kitchen organisational skills and their interaction with their commis chef.”
Entries close 30 April 2017.
