Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, and Jérôme Bocuse (Paul Bocuse's son) have created an awesome competition that allows young chefs and commis to compete to win $1,500 or a 4-month paid stage in Yountville, California and Lyon, France with the Bocuse d'Or Team USA.
The competition for the young chefs boils down to an intense 155 minutes. Each competitor will cook and plate 10 tasting size portions of a unique recipe they developed. The commis will only have 90 minutes. They will be judged on overall taste, presentation, and kitchen organization.
