2016 will certainly stand as a year to be remembered in the encounter between the Bocuse d’Or and Hungary. The Bocuse d’Or Europe saw the crowning of Hungarian national Tamàs Szell.
Since then, the Hungarian Gastronomy has never stopped reinventing itself, giving rise to a scene of new young chefs, inspired more and more by their terroir, local products, picking fruits and berries, and all the elegance of the great Tokaj, the inimitable white wines from the region north east of Budapest.
The Bocuse d’or represents the best tribute to our demanding trade. At a time when the world of cuisine is more than ever keen to cooperate and exchange ideas to reconquer all its might after such a destabilising period, I am convinced that Budapest will once more prove to be an exceptional host to celebrate our wonderful trade and industry.
Zoltan Hamvas, President of Bocuse d’Or Hungary.
On March 23 & 24, 2022, during Sirha Budapest, no doubt this enthusiasm will translate into support for the 20 teams who will be competing!
