Reality: It's not just for television.

Americans have never been among the top three at the Bocuse d’Or, a competition started by the French chef Paul Bocuse 21 years ago and considered the Olympics of food. We hope that Top Chef winner Hung Huynh will change that. Hung was chosen to participate by an advisory board consisting of Jerome Bocuse, Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, Dan Barber, Tom Colicchio, Jacques Pepin, Daniel Humm, Andre Soltner, and Laurent Tourondel.

Grub St. has the full story.

Holy cow, that's a pretty amazing set of chefs to have in your pocket. Funny I didn't see Ilan's name anywhere?

Yup, very impressive indeed!

I was wondering when you were going to post this on the blog :)

Ilan, Ilan...the Casa Mono tasting menu thief.

Ilan's name isn't up there because well...I'm sure he didn't apply because if he couldn't cook anything in his 'Spanish' repertoire, he'd go down in flames as we've all seen when he had to cook duck in that Season 1 vs Season 2 Smackdown :)
