Denmark Wins 2011 Bocuse D'Or

Nordic Sweep at the Bocuse d'Or

Today in France, the world's most well-trained chefs gathered to compete at the Bocuse d'Or — the culinary industry's equivalent of the Olympics. The United States was represented by chefs James Kent and Tom Allan and they were coached by chef Thomas Keller and previous Bocuse competitor Gavin Kaysen.

Despite high hopes that the New York chefs would do better than the previous American team, who finished sixth in 2009, Kent and Allan failed to place once again and came in with a disappointing 10th overall.

The gold medal went to Denmark with Nordic countries Sweden and Norway coming in second and third. Considering that Denmark's Noma was named best restaurant in the world, it's no surprise that the chefs from Northern Europe blew the competition out of the water.

I feel bad for Team USA. They want so badly to win every year, or to even podium, and it never happens. Maybe they need to bring in someone from Europe to provide strategic insight.
