The theme was a meat base Pâté-croute - no truffle allowed, serving 14 people.

Applications were open for entries from the 1st of June 2023 until August 28, 2023.

How to apply ?


The application file must contain a presentation form, the full recipe including detailed step by step preparation and photographs of the recipe (we strongly recommend sending both a picture of the whole pâté as well as a close-up of a slice). Contestants must ensure that everything featured in their file remains entirely anonymous (plates, letter paper, moulds, etc.).
