For the second time in Bocuse d’Or history, Team Denmark took the top spot and were announced the 2019 winners of the prestigious competition, with Sweden and Norway taking second and third place respectively.
The Bocuse d’Or brings 24 chefs from around the world to Lyon in France, the home of the legendary Chef Paul Bocuse, who passed away a year ago. The competition, which was initiated by Chef Bocuse in 1987, takes place over two intense days, and has become a fantastic springboard for chefs. The competition also promotes gastronomic heritages from around the world, and is an excellent showcase for global cuisines. For the 2019 competition, the participants had to create two recipes to win over the judges: roast a rack of veal with 5 prime ribs as a tribute to Paul Bocuse and revisit the Chartreuse of vegetables and shellfish as a tribute to Joël Robuchon.
Take a look at the dishes which won the Denmark team the 2019 title:
