Bocuse d'Or Academy Australia
Established in early 2013, the Bocuse d’Or Academy Australia aspires to raise national awareness of the competition, while building a sustainable community of chefs and garnering support for the Australian teams.
The Academy is devoted to inspiring culinary excellence in professionals, while preserving the traditions and quality of classic cuisine in Australia. Our aim is to continually seek integrity and innovation in the culinary arts, as well as facilitate initiatives that will maintain the prestige of the Bocuse d’Or competition.
The Road to Lyon
Australia’s Road to Lyon was sadly interrupted – as were so many things – by the global corona virus pandemic in 2020.
The Bocuse d’Or Asia Pacific 2020 in Guangzhou was cancelled and our competitor Joshua Pelham and his Commis Chef Harrison Caruana withdrew from the 2021 Bocuse d’Or Grand Finale in Lyon due to Australia’s travel restrictions.
We are now focused on selecting our next Australian Chef and Commis in 2021, ready to compete in the Bocuse d’Or Asia Pacific 2022 and hopefully the 2023 Bocuse d’Or Grand Finale. Come join us on our journey!
