  • Les Chefs en Or

    The cookery competition for chefs and apprentices from all over the world is back once again in Studio des Chefs ! Transgourmet and its partners, Chef®, LDC and Elle & Vire Professionnel, are actively preparing the second international edition of Chefs en Or.

    Since its creation in 2004, this competition has become an industry standard and a milestone for anyone who wants to make their mark through their originality and technique.

    The Chefs en Or (Golden Chefs) competitions are back in 2018! The finals for both apprentices and seasoned chefs will take place on 11 and 12 November 2018. 

  • What's in store

    During a contest held before an audience, 7 Chefs and 7 Apprentices from France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Romania, Poland and Russia
    had 3 hours to make an original dish and present it for tasting to the members of a prestigious judging panel
    chaired by Thierry Marx, Executive Chef and Director of Catering at the Mandarin Oriental, Paris (2 Michelin® stars for Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx).


    The contestants selected in each of the participating countries discovered the themes dreamt up by Chef Thierry Marx: audacious combinations of products that allowed each contestant to let their imagination run wild, show off their know-how and highlight their culinary culture.
