Hundreds of chefs from around the world attend Paul Bocuse’s funeral in Lyon

Published: 2018/01/27 by

Hundreds of chefs from around the world – all wearing their chef whites – gathered in Lyon to pay their final respects to legendary French chef Paul Bocuse, often referred to as the “Pope of French cuisine”.

The master chef who defined French cuisine for more than half a century, died aged 91 on 20 January.

Bocuse’s temple to French gastronomy, L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges, in the town near Lyon where he was born, has held three stars — without interruption — since 1965 in the Michelin guide, the bible of gastronomes.

Among the chefs assembled to see him off were fellow legends Alain Ducasse, who currently holds 21 Michelin stars, Joël Robuchon, who has 28, and US chef Thomas Keller, whose Napa Valley restaurant The French Laundry regularly tops the annual Restaurant Magazine list of the Top 50 Restaurants of the World.
