Exhibition to Honor 30 Years of Bocuse d’Or
The one-of-a-kind Musée de l’Art Culinaire en France, housed in Auguste Escoffier’s birthplace, is celebrating the Bocuse d’Or contest in honor of its 30th anniversary!
Following the huge success of the 2017 contest, its 30 years of existence will continue to be celebrated for several months thanks to the Musée Escoffier’s remarkable initiative.
For the Bocuse d’Or Winners association, which now counts 44 chefs writing the contest’s history, and organizer Gl-events, it was natural to be a partner in the event, loaning a plethora of posters, commemorative medals, anniversary book, trophy in its current format, etc. The Bocuse d’Or was the first to present a cooking contest in front of a live audience, and the event is recognized as much for its incredible technical feats as for the festive atmosphere it creates. Numerous photos and videos of chefs in action during the competition will plunge visitors into the amazing atmosphere of this prestigious international contest.
Régis MARCON, Bocuse d’Or 1995, 3 stars in the Michelin Guide, is sponsoring the exhibition, supported also by Jacky FRÉON, winner of the very first contest in 1987. They have loaned personal items and notably the contest trophy in its initial form, a compression created by the artist CÉSAR.
The exhibition “30 years of the Bocuse d’Or” will be held from April 26 to October 31 2017 at the Musée Escoffier de l’Art Culinaire in Villeneuve-Loubet village.
