What is the Cycle Bocuse d'Or?
Prior to the Bocuse d’Or final, which takes place every two years in Lyon, there is the national elimination stage. In Switzerland, this follows the same format as the final in Lyon. Several chefs create and cook their dishes live using specified ingredients. The winner subsequently takes part in the European stage, Bocuse d’Or Europe, one of the continental elimination rounds. A total of 60 nations take part in the international competition. In Europe, 18 candidates compete against each other with the best 10 qualifying for the final in Lyon. 24 national teams then meet in Lyon, where they are required to complete two theme-based dishes in 5 hours and 35 minutes.
