In just over two weeks, Argentina could, for the first time ever, bring home gold from the rigorous Bocuse D’Or culinary competition, which will take place in Lyon, France. Representing Argentina is Emiliano Schobert, a chef at San Carlos de Bariloche’s El Obrador Escuela de Arte Culinaria, who has been preparing for the competition for close to two years. He, along with Chile’s Mauricio Nuñez, and Guatemala’s Marcos Saenz, will represent Latin America in the competition, all three of whom won their coveted spots after competing at the Azteca Latin American Culinary Competition in 2013.
