Hideki TAKAYAMA just made history during the Bocuse d’Or Asia-Pacific 2018 and becomes the best chef of Asia-Pacific continent this year! On May 9th 2018 in Guangzhou (China) the Japanese chef has won his ticket to the finale of the Bocuse d’Or, the most prestigious gastronomy contest in the world, along with Thailand, South Korea, Australia, Singapore and China. Thanks to the cooperation between Lingnan Group, the City of Guangzhou and GL events, the contest was a tremendous success!

After 2 days of an intense competition presided by Stefan Stiller and under the eyes of hundreds of enthusiastic supporters, Hideki TAKAYAMA has won the favours of the jury composed by Jérôme Bocuse (President of Bocuse d’Or), Alvin Leung (President of Honour), Kotaro Hasegawa (President of the Jury), and the presidents of each team.

As expected, because Japan has always been the front runner, Hideki TAKAYAMA presented outstanding dishes: Australian Veal tenderloin with Morels, white asparagus and Vegetables mille-feuille and Salmon with verbena sauce, green asparagus, shiitake, Yuzu and Sancho, Royale with dashi.

Created 31 years ago by the Chef of the Century Paul Bocuse, the Bocuse d’Or is today the most dazzling and challenging gastronomy contest in the world. To win the Asia-Pacific selection is an accomplishment for the Japanese chef, who received the coveted trophy by the hands of Jérôme Bocuse, son of Paul Bocuse and now Bocuse d’Or President.
