Bocuse d'Or Will Not Return To Epcot

Published: December 4, 2009 at 12:48 PM

Jerome Bocuse, son of legendary chef Paul Bocuse and head of his father's operations at Chefs de France in Epcot, was a guest judge on this week's Top Chef (the episode will be rebroadcast tonight at 7). The episode's winner won a chance to compete in the US finals for the prestigious Bocuse d'Or, a biennial culinary competition. The last US finals were held as part of Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival. A subtle reference on the program to the next competition was a huge blow to Epcot -- it isn't coming back next year. Here's the full story

Eh, I think its great that EPCOT got the chance to hold it before. It might come back, but maybe they wanted to have it somewhere else. However, Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT sounds like a perfect place to have it!

I think the word "huge" is a bit of an overstatement. But I see Mr. Joseph's point.
