Thank you for applying for the Bocuse d’Or Team USA 2025 National Selection!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete for a place in US culinary history to become Team USA 2025.
Being chosen to represent our country in the Americas Selection in 2024 as well as at the Bocuse d’Or Finale in Lyon, France, in January 2025 is an honor and a privilege. Considered the most rigorous cooking competition in the world, the Bocuse d’Or represents the pinnacle of global culinary excellence, dedication, artistry and human achievement.
In 1987, Monsieur Paul Bocuse established the Bocuse d’Or International Culinary Competition to broaden the world’s understanding of the extraordinary dedication, hard work, practice, and precision required to execute tomorrow’s haute cuisine. Over the past several 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. Team USA has been honored to be a part of this international community and to have been on the Finale podium in 2015 with Silver and in 2017 with Gold.
As we celebrate the great talent and the culinary heritage in America, we continue our pursuit for Gold. We are now looking for the next Team USA composed of 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 represent our great country at the Bocuse d’Or in 2025.
The Bocuse d’Or represents an opportunity of a lifetime and we wish all applicants the very best of luck!
