The world's culinary superstars are currently gathered in Lyon, France for the annual Bocuse d'Or competition, and a few nights ago 200 of them gathered to pay homage to the contest's namesake, chef Paul Bocuse. Dîner des Grands Chefs du Monde was served in Lyon's city hall, prepared by none other than chefs Emmanuel Renaut, Alain Ducasse and Thomas Keller. According to the AFP, attendees included chefs Yannick Alleno, Eric Frechon, Pierre Gagnaire, Anne-Sophie Pic, Thierry Marx, Guy Savoy and Pierre Troisgros. Not too shabby.
Below, a news report (in French, sorry) takes a peek inside the Dîner des Grands Chefs du Monde. The Bocuse d'Or took place today with Team France taking home the gold.
