In June 2018, for the first time in the history of the Bocuse d’Or a continental qualifying contest was held in Africa.
The contest is an opportunity for 8 teams, winners of the national rounds in the their respective countries, to pit their skills against each other in order to determine the 2 countries that will take part in the final of the Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France.
This African qualifying event received much attention and interest from the community of African and international chefs. More than a great springboard that boosts the participants’ careers, the Bocuse d’Or Africa reflects the emergence of new countries on the scene of international gastronomy.
The Bocuse d’Or Africa will be held on October 24th and 25th, 2020, in Marrakesh (Morocco). The list of participating countries will be released soon.
