Denmark celebrates a hat-trick of wins at the ‘Bocuse d’Or’, the “Gastronomy equivalent of the Olympic games” in Lyon (France’s food capital). The Sirha Bocuse d’Or involves 70 national and four continental events over a two-year period, culminating in a final showdown in Sirha, the world catering trade fair meeting at Lyon Eurexpo. 41-year-old chef Brian Mark Hansen, who officiated in a Michelin-starred restaurant north of Copenhagen, led the Nordic team to its third victory after the 2019 and 2011 editions. Denmark won the jury’s votes in both categories: a “children’s menu” concocted around squash and a main dish made from monkfish tail, the most impressive piece of the competition.
