At 10am this morning the final day of the Bocuse d'Orchef competition began. Named after the legendary Paul Bocuse the competition takes place every two years at the end of January with hundreds of chefs representing teams from countries all over the world.
The event is loud and boisterous as large crowds attend to watch the teams of chefs cook up dishes that many of them have been practicing for two years.
Thomas Keller will be there as the ambassador of the American culinary team who are very keen to do well in a competition that's often referred to as the culinary Olympics.
Last year's top spot went to Denmark with Rasmus Kofoed who had previously won bronze and silver in other years. An achievement that, as he explains in this video below, took over his entire life.
The Bocuse d"Or Competition can be watched live all day with a presentation of the winners taking place at 5.50pm in Europe.
Francesco Martucci from I Masanielli in the Campania region of Italy has been named the best pizzaiolo in the world for a third year running. See the full list as well as all the international winners.
