Last Tuesday I attended a special event in New York City during which the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) honored several chefs including Paul Bocuse. The CIA named Bocuse the Chef of the Century and there were numerous other notable chefs there including Thomas Keller, Todd English, David Burke and Charlie Trotter, just to name a few.
I was only able to stay for a short bit as I had to get back to Kendall College to help a group of Delaware North chefs who are training for CSC certification. Still, it was a nice event and it was wonderful to see everyone. Chef Bocuse is truly a great chef who did a lot for all of us chefs and cooks around the world.
