Scott Jaeger at Bocuse d’Or
Scott Jaeger, supported by apprentice Brody White, both of the Pear Tree Restaurant in Burnaby, represented Canada at the 2007 Bocuse d’Or culinary competition in Lyon, France.
The Bocuse d’Or is one of the premier international cooking competitions in the world. It is organized under the stewardship of famed French chef Paul Bocuse, and is held every two years in Lyon. Two days of intense cooking culminate in the presentation of the Gold Bocuse trophy to the overall grand winner. The 2007 Bocuse d’Or took place on January 23 and 24, 2007.
Each competing country may send only one representative chef to this competition – Scott won the right to compete in Lyon at the Canadian Culinary Federation’s National Selection Competition in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in 2004. He had the opportunity to attend Bocuse 2005 to learn about the markets, conditions and pressure in Lyon allowing him to be better prepared for his time on the world cooking stage.
