Maybe you are not familiar with the Bocuse d'Or. Highly regarded as the world championship of chefs, this prestigious cooking competition is held every two years in Lyon, France. Named for its founder and president Chef Paul Bocuse, the Bocuse d'Or exemplifies the highest level finesse and culinary artistry. This past Sunday Chef Richard Rosendale of the Greenbrier Resort became the USA representative and will compete in the Bocuse d'Or 2013 against 23 other countries.


Rosendale's win Sunday at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY is another step in setting the stage for the USA, who has never placed higher than 6th, to rise to the top of the Bocuse podium. A seasoned competitor, Chef Rosendale has competed in over 40 national and international cooking competitions. Formerly the captain of the American Culinary Federations' (ACF) Team USA, Rosendale has competed in The Culinary Olympics, and even earned a perfect score at the highest levels of international competition for his attention to detail and mastery of his craft. Rosendale is also one of only 66 Certified Master Chefs (CMC) in this country, the highest level of certification a chef can achieve through the ACF.

As Chef Rosendale begins on his path, he has a very strong team of coaches and advisors, as well as the backing of the Bocuse d'Or USA Foundation. Chefs including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, and Grant Achatz will be working tirelessly to help bring the golden Paul Bocuse trophy to the USA. This is going to be an important time in the history of American Cuisine, and I cannot wait to follow Chef Rosendales' journey to victory. Make sure to follow his tweets along the way @RosendaleCMC
