The Blancpain watch brand is the official timepiece of the world-renowned culinary competition, and has become a connoisseur of the world’s top restaurants for its gourmet column in the brand magazine ‘Lettres du Brassus’. In recent years, Blancpain has continued to innovate in the field of gastronomy, and has cooperated with more than 100 Michelin-starred restaurants. Surging passion, exquisite craftsmanship, and authentic quality are the common values of the high-end watch and high-end gourmet field: in fact, in these two industries, every step and every preparation is required to be extremely precise. Demanding requirements, they can show all their charm. Whether it is Blancpain timepieces or an exquisite high-end cuisine, its quality depends on the delicate harmony of traditional craftsmanship and pioneering creativity.
That’s why Blancpain joins the 2014 Bocuse d’ Or in Switzerland. The competition closed successfully in Geneva on January 27th (Monday), and the Swiss players participating in the 2014 Bogus Cooking Contest European Competition were officially selected. Franck Giovannini is the jury chair of this competition. The honor jury is composed of celebrity chefs Frédy Girardet Roland Pierroz, Gérard Rabaey and Philippe Rochat. They need to judge the winner among the following players:
Thierry Boillat, Deputy Chef at Seven, Ascona
Laure Anne Dennis, Chef, Parc des Eaux Vives, Geneva
Christoph Hunziker, Chef, Schärmehof, Thun
Elodie Schenk, Chef, Auberge du Soleil, Bill Sands
Competitors need to complete a seafood dish consisting of rainbow trout and three side dishes, a meat dish mainly consisting of hind legs and lamb shoulders within 5 hours and 40 minutes, and three side dishes, one of which must Contains cheese from Gruyeres. During the game, Christophe Hunziker came out on top.
Blancpain Vice President Alain Delamuraz personally presented the player with the new Fifty Fathoms diving watch Bathyscaphe. The young chef will represent Switzerland in the European Bogus Competition in Stockholm on May 7th and 8th.
