On both 8 and 9 May, the Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center in China will come alive as 11 teams of highly talented chefs, representing 11 countries, pit their culinary talent against each other in front of an audience of fans.

Just 5 places are up for grabs in this heat, in which the chefs have only 5 hours and 35 minutes to prove themselves. During the intense culinary showdown, there will be nowhere to hide with two jurys assessing their every move both in both the kitchen and at the final plating and tasting stage.

This selection forms the second of three continental selections of the Bocuse d’Or, which is widely considered as the “culinary Olympics.”

The Americas have already competed with the US coming first. This round forms the last step before going to Lyon, France for the Finale that takes place in January 2019 during the Sirha trade show.
