Summarising the event, Honorary president of the competition Grant Achatz said: “It’s been an amazing experience here in Lyon and I had a lot of food, all excellent. I will say that it becomes very apparent when you’re sitting up here watching all these teams put so much effort in how much hard work is done.”
Chefs represented teams from 24 countries around the world came to Lyon to take part in the bi-annual competition which was founded in 1987 by the legendary French chefPaul Bocuse. The teams work for two years perfected a specially made meat and fish platter to present to the judging panel which is made up of high profile chefs.
