The Bocuse d'Or USA competition was held yesterday at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., to determine who will represent America in the next annual International Bocuse d'Or, held in France a year from now.

The winner? Richard Rosendale, executive chef of the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., who won with his commis, 21-year-old Corey Siegal. Second place in the competition went to Jeffrey Lizotte of Restaurant ON20 in Hartford, Conn.; William Bradley, an instructor at Le Cordon Bleu College in Cambridge, Mass., won the bronze. French chef Paul Bocuse established the Bocuse d'Or contest in 1987. American chef Thomas Keller (The French Laundry, Per Se) has been president of the American team since 2008.
