« Since its inception, the Bocuse d'Or has evaluated the precision of the tastes, the presentation and the harmony of the flavours. In 2015, this assessment was completed by the creation of a Cuisine Jury which takes another look at the work of the chef. Its assessment allows us to understand how the candidate behaves, who he is, how he manages his team and uses the products at his disposal, explains Régis Marcon, President of the International Organising Committee of the Bocuse d'Or. The Cuisine Jury does not only judge the candidates but also supports them throughout the competition. »

The Tasting Jury 

The Tasting Jury is composed of chefs designated by each team and selected for their professionalism and open-mindedness. They are the privileged witnesses of the creativity of the Bocuse d'Or candidates. These chefs, recognised in their country for their talents, are divided into two groups in order to evaluate the platter theme for 12 of them, and "Feed the Kids" for the others. Their mission is all the more demanding as it requires maximum concentration and objectivity during the tastings.
