Mauviel, a seventh-generation family-owned manufacturer of cookware, recently sponsored the Bocuse d’Or, which is one of the world’s most prestigious gastronomic competitions. And, for the first time in the competition’s 30-year history, Team USA took home top honors, winning gold.
“This event is significant for us because acclaimed chefs have used our cookware in the privacy of their professional and personal kitchens for more than 186 years. Bocuse d’Or, the Olympics of the culinary world, takes our cookware out of these working kitchens and places it onto the world stage for all to see,” said Valerie Le Guern Gilbert, president, Mauviel.
Every two years, the world final of the Bocuse d’Or contest brings together chefs who have won competitions in their national and then continental selection events: Bocuse Europe, Bocuse Asia-Pacific and Bocuse Latin America. The 2016 competition was held in Lyon, France.
