Bocuse d'Or Australia 2021

The first step on the road to Lyon

Australia’s next competitor in the elite Bocuse d’Or world cuisine contest will be decided at Foodservice Australia on Sunday 27 June 2021.

Four finalists, selected to meet international criteria, will compete with their commis chefs in a challenging six-hour contest of talent, technique, endurance and creativity.

The winner will receive a gold trophy and the prestigious title of Bocuse d’Or Australia 2021, plus a trip to compete in the Bocuse d’Or Asia Pacific 2022. If placed in the top five, the chef and commis will go on to represent Australia in the Grand Final in Lyon 2023.

Come and watch as the four finalists prepare a lavish fish dish on a plate and an intricate meat dish on a platter, then present them to a panel of judges including Bocuse d’Or Australia President Tom Milligan, Vice President Philippe Mouchel and Coach Scott Pickett. The winner will be announced at The Road to Lyon Dinner, 6.30pm at MCEC.
