The European final will take place in 2022. The candidate, commissioner and the entire coaching team will together represent our country during this final. If Belgium can secure a place in the top 10, the doors will open to the world championship in Lyon in 2023.
THE OLYMPICS OF GASTRONOMY
The Belgian Bocuse d’Or team will be coached by several chefs.
Our national team will practice in a new training center, which has been specially set up to train Belgian chefs in preparation for the Bocuse d’Or. Like Olympic athletes, top chefs cannot afford to overlook details when trying to medal at the Bocuse d’Or. Thanks to our partners, a kitchen has been installed that is an almost exact copy of the Bocuse kitchen where the Belgian team can devote themselves fully to their cooking skills.
In this way, our laureates can prepare to perfection and nothing is left to chance.
BELGIUM GOES FOR GOLD!
BACK TO THE TOP!
The last time Belgium was a medallist in the Bocuse d’Or world final was in 1999. It was Ferdy Debecker at that time who was the competing chef. Now he is president of the Bocuse d’Or Winners.
It’s not surprising that Belgium has achieved a place on the podium many times before. After all, we have a high density of star restaurants. Our country still holds third place in the leaderboard of medallists. With intensive trainings of the Belgian team, we aim for a place on the podium yet again!
