The Bocuse D'Or is happening this week in Lyon, France. The preeminent cooking competition in the world, this biennial event is a bit crazy and a lot of fun. You can follow my reports and photos from the 2009 competition as well as the 2010 selection process for the United States representative here. To really get a sense of what the Bocuse D'Or is all about, though, I suggest reading Andrew Friedman's outstanding book, Knives at Dawn. It's a great read and it's not too late to do so before the fun begins on Tuesday.
