Chef Daniel Joly a judge in Prix Culinaire International cooking competition in Paris
Chef Daniel Joly, owner of Mirabelle at Beaver Creek, was a judge in the 48th annual Prix Culinaire International final held in Paris earlier this week.
Joly is a member of the jury for the Grand Final Tasting; Joly was also a judge in the semi-final Benelux in Brussels, Belgium in October. Joly will be the only North American chef on the jury panel this year.
This second level of competition brings together in Paris the winners of the national finals and the French selection finals. The competition theme is decided by the organizing committee and, at the end of the day-long competition, the winner is awarded first prize in the Taittinger by the international jury.
“It’s important to stay connected and be an enthusiast about new and upcoming talent in our profession,” Joly said. “The Taittinger is one of the most respected culinary challenges in Europe and Japan and has been around for 48 years. I am proud to be part of the process. I enjoyed all of the talented new chefs that participated and look forward to meeting firsthand the new winner in Paris.”
About the Taittinger
The Taittinger culinary completion was created in 1967 by Claude Taittinger in homage to his father, the founder and patriarch of Taittinger Champagne. On the eve of its 48th year, the Taittinger reaffirms with conviction and generosity its desire to continue its efforts to keep alive the spirit and tradition of the grand masters of French cuisine.
