Bocuse d'Or Announces Superstar Judge Lineup

hmmm - that's quite a list - but there are a lot of judges that i'm not familiar with. i guess it's going to be quite the esteemed competition huh? especially seeing who's in the competition itself. i can't wait to hear more about this - i'm always a sucker for cooking competitions.
