A partnership that focuses on the taste of good things.

We have been designing and manufacturing kitchen utensils for professionals for over a century. It is therefore an honour to be part of the biggest and most prestigious culinary competition and to see the world's greatest chefs training with our products in order to achieve the best results. The success of a recipe depends on the technique, the quality of the ingredients and the utensils.

SIRHA Bocuse d'or

What is it?​

The world's biggest culinary competition.​

In January 1987, Paul Bocuse created the  Bocuse d’Or, a revolutionary gastronomy contest.
Replicating the codes of major sporting events, he imagined a true show placing the emphasis on cooking and on the chefs.


See you in 2023

The next final of the Bocuse d’Or will take place on 2023, during the SIRHA LYON, Eurexpo Lyon.


Bring together 24 young chefs from all over the world, among the most promising talents of their generation, and have them prepare superb dishes within 5 hours 35 minutes, live in front of an enthusiastic audience.

To tell them apart, a jury composed of the most illustrious chefs of the planet.

Beyond a mere cooking contest, the Bocuse d'Or is a show that draws extraordinary media coverage. Many talented chefs have made a name for themselves thanks to the contest, and have promoted their own culinary heritage.



Candidates will have to create a takeaway menu based on 3 dishes (starter, main course, dessert), and the same seasonal product: the tomato, in partnership with the French food wholesaler METRO. All of this will be presented in a box developed by the candidates themselves using plant-based materials, and which must be reusable.


The platter theme, in partnership with Label Rouge beef, will feature a hot dish based on whole braised beef chuck, presented for the first time on a same platter for all candidates, financed by the competition organization and designed by the partner DE BUYER.



This is perhaps the most eagerly awaited test of the competition, due to the wealth of techniques required to achieve the final result.

The 24 candidates will have to present the hot dish and its side dishes for 14 people on this huge tray of almost 90 cm.

The unusually large tray is made of polished stainless steel on the inside and outside.

Its mirror-like surface will magnify the products presented by the candidates.

Weighing almost 13 kg, 4 ergonomic handles will allow Chefs to move it easily from the box to the jury.
