Throwback Thursday: JBF Award Winner Gavin Kaysen and the 2015 Bocuse d'OrJBF Editors
February 05, 2015
JBF Award winner Gavin Kaysen was one of the coaches of the U.S. team that brought home the silver medal from this year’s Bocuse d’Or, the world’s most prestigious cooking competition held biannually in Lyon, France. Kaysen, who won the JBF Rising Star Chef award in 2008, competed in the 2007 Bocuse d'Or, and has been involved with every subsequent American team. In this week's TBT we’re celebrating his hard-fought victory with this video of Kaysen on the red carpet at the JBF Awards in 2009, where he dished on breakfast, Café Boulud, and the significance of presenting the Rising Star category with JBF Award winner Jacques Pépin.
Stay tuned for updates on the 2015 James Beard Awards. The Restaurant and Chef Award semifinalist announcement is coming up on Wednesday, February 18.
