Lisa Mamounas' Culinary Insiders
The largest gathering of the world’s leading chefs all join together every two years at a widely anticipated competition entitled the Bocuse d’Or. Referred to as the culinary equivalent of the Olympics, it’s held in Lyon, France with chefs competing from around the globe. The grandstands are full with thousands of fan cheering, some in their own unique ways, such as Japan with drums, horns and multiple, organized cheers. It’s a raucous affair.
There are moments in life that you know you will never forget. Many of mine revolve around food.
The earliest memories begin with rainy Sundays spent with my family watching movies, where my Dad cooked an Italian feast and eggplant parmigiana was a favorite (he was a much better cook than my Mom at the time).
