The Bocuse d'Or wrapped up today in Lyon, France. James Kent of Eleven Madison Park
represented the US at the competition.
About James Kent:
"A native New Yorker, James started his culinary career as a summer apprentice at Bouley when he was fifteen years old. Johnson and Wales provided a formal culinary basis, expounded upon with classes at the Le Cordon Bleu in London and Paris. After graduating, James returned to New York taking jobs at Babbo as Tournant, at Jean-Georges as Saucier, and on the opening team as Poissonier at Gordon Ramsey. James joined the team at Eleven Madison Park in spring 2007. Starting as a Line Cook, James’ versatility led to a very quick promotion to his current position as Sous Chef.
James will compete in Lyon with his commis, Sous Chef Tom Allan, who has spent time cooking in the kitchens of Eleven Madison Park and Per Se."
