In a First, U.S. to Host Bocuse D'Or Event

In a first, the U.S. will host a preliminary event for the Bocuse D'or culinary competition at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

A gold medal may signal sports to some, but to professional chefs, it's the highest honor in the culinary world. Indeed, the international culinary competition Bocuse D'Or, which takes place every two years, is perhaps the most prestigious award in cooking. In a first, the U.S. will host a preliminary event, at the Venetian in Las Vegas:

In the world of chefs and restaurateurs, it’s known as Bocuse D’Or and nicknamed “the world Olympics of food.” The prestigious culinary challenge to award a gold, silver and bronze to the world’s top three chefs is the ultimate win, and an American chef has won silver only once. This year for the first time, that could change because the United States will play host to a preliminary Bocuse D’Or event, and it will happen at the Venetian during a four-day food extravaganza from Dec. 17-20. It’s the third year of the Ultimo weekend of excellence at the Venetian and Palazzo, but the first time Bocuse D’Or kicks off the feasting. – Las Vegas Sun
