Bocuse d’Or Team USA 2019 Selection Application

Since 2008 it has been a key mission for the Foundation to enable the best young talent in America to effectively train for the privilege and honor of representing the United States at the Bocuse d’Or in Lyon.  The result of that patience and determination was realized for the first time in 2015 when Team USA stood on the podium with the Silver Bocuse, garnering the recognition and respect of the international culinary community. In January of 2017 we were proud to return from Lyon with the Bocuse d’Or, having realized Monsieur Paul Bocuse’s dream of USA winning Gold.

Through the past nine years we have discovered the Bocuse d’Or to be not only an intensely challenging competition but also a journey of tremendous growth and reward for those involved.  We are now looking for the next Team USA comprised of young American chefs who, building on the support structure, expertise and experience of our Board, coaches, and past teams, will show the talent, tenacity and determination to defend our Gold title at the Bocuse d’Or in 2019.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime and we hope that you will join us as we continue to build this dynasty and keep inspiring the next generation of great American chefs.
