Bocuse D’Or 2017 Australian candidate Dan Arnold at Lutèce
I would like to share with you a great moment in the Australian culinary scene. From Lyon – France
Australia made history on January 25th at the World culinary contest the Bocuse D’Or 2017. Australian candidate and protégé Daniel Arnold placing 8th of the 24 teams competing, and winning the Competition Marketing Trophy with his commis Ryan Consentino, coach Romuald Fassenet Star Michelin chef Chateau Mt Joly in the French Jura & President Philippe Mouchel acclaimed chef from Restaurant Philippe -Melbourne.
This is Australia’s best placing ever and first time in the first 10 countries since the start in the Bocuse D’Or competition 30 years ago in 1987.
Dan Arnold started as an apprentice under my guidance in 2005 in Brisbane, and after a few month I discovered that Dan had fantastic abilities and a great future in the profession.
The day he was ready, I advise him to pursuit his career in France with the best chefs.
Dan start working in France with 3 star Michelin chef Marc Meneau in Vezelay and since 2012 at the restaurant Serge Vieira, 2 star Michelin chef in Chaudes-Aigues. Serge Vieira won the Golden Bocuse in 2005, and Dan’s mentor in France.
Last month was for me a proud moment in my chef’s career with Dan’s achievement & to see around me in the tribunes Dan’s parent’s, beautiful French wife Amelie, family, French & Australian supporters celebrating.
Daniel will be cooking a Bocuse D’Or fundraising dinner at Lutèce on Monday 27th February, to thank the sponsors, to meet our fantastic patrons and media.
