West Virginia’s Greenbrier has Big Doings
It’s often described as the Olympics of the Food World. Entering its 26th edition in 2013, the Bocuse D’Or—a biennial competition started by one of the fathers of French cooking, Paul Bocuse, that brings together the best chefs in a country, and then the world—is one of the great culinary honors.
In 2012 the top toque award at the U.S.A. competition went to Chef Richard Rosendale of The Greenbrier. He went on with his team to compete January 30 in Paris and came in 7th place out of 24 teams!!
This weekend the Greenbrier will be the location of one of West Virginia’s most acclaimed cooking competitions. The Cast Iron Skillet Cook-Off is organized by the Collaborative for 21st Century Appalachia to spotlight the region as a culinary destination.
Fourteen teams will be participating in three different cooking competitions on Saturday, February 2. If you can not go to Greenbrier to cheer them on, you can watch the event which will be live-streamed by Bethany College’s Department of Communications.
