Hungarian team finished third at the Bocuse d’Or

SIRHA’s Bocuse d’Or is the world’s most prestigious cooking competition and international gastronomic meeting, and the Hungarian team came third in the final in Lyon.


The Bocuse d’Or features teams from twenty-four countries around the world, and the line-up is getting stronger every year. As always, the Scandinavian countries set an extraordinary pace—Denmark came first, Norway second—and the 2017 winner, the USA, returned to the race.

The Hungarian team was headed by Bence Dalnoki, sous chef of the two Michelin–starred Stand, with Patrik Nyikos as commis and Tamás Széll, the chef with the greatest Bocuse d’Or experience, as coach. The team was represented by Zoltán Hamvas, President of Bocuse d’Or Hungary, in the tasting jury.

“This is a huge milestone not only in the history of the Hungarian Bocuse d’Or competition, but in the history of Hungarian gastronomy as a whole. Many years of experience, a lot of hard work, sacrifice and teamwork are behind the result. This bronze statue is further proof that Hungary has a place on the world gastronomic map,” pointed out Zoltán Hamvas, President of Bocuse d’Or Hungary.
