Aureole Chef Marcus Ware Is Taking Over Our Instagram At Next Week's Bocuse d'Or

The Bocuse d'Or is a biennial cooking competition named after famous Lyonnais chef Paul Bocuse. It's considered both the Olympics and the Super Bowl of the culinary world — with 24 countries competing in a two-day battle royale. For the past 15 months we've been covering Team USA, from the captain selection process (that honor went to Richard Rosendale, Executive Chef at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV) to the final preparations leading up to the two-day competition (January 29-30). While our staff will be watching the action via web stream, our friend Marcus Ware (executive chef at Aureole in New York City) will be taking over our Instagram account and reporting live from Lyon. Yes, he's English, but he's going to support Team USA. Follow along on our Instagram account, starting today and through the competition early next week. To catch you up all things Bocuse d'Or, here are some stories from the past year:
