Greenbrier Chef Richard Rosendale to Compete in Bocuse d’Or

5 posts in this topic

It was a good article, though- sounds like he might be a real competitor, especially with that level of attention to detail.

The competition is over and the USA didn't place. Is this an epic fail given all the prep and time and money and effort that went into it, or a BS contest where the fix was in? Thomas Keller was tweeting before during and after the event and while Keller always nice and professional, a lot of commenters replying to his posts said things like "big surprise, France won again" or "fixed" or sometinng along those lines.

So is this thing a vanity project for France or a real competition?

I don't know how much direct influence Rosendale has on banquet food at the Greenbrier, but at a recent wedding the food, presented beautifully, was completely forgettable. When Rosendale made his brief attempt at a restaurant in the Columbus market (Rosendale's, now defunct), we were stunned at how gorgeous presentations of expensive ingredients could be so flavorless. The food was lovely and tasteless. (He had a great bar in there, though, with an awesome group of employees). I wonder if Mr. Rosendale is all flash and no flavor?
