Despite months of intense training under a slew of top-tier chefs, the American team at Bocuse d'Or was unable to secure a medal, landing in seventh place. Chefs Richard Rosendale and Corey Siegel's performance was an improvement from the U.S.'s 10th place finish in 2011, but France, Denmark and Japan took top honors out of the 24 competing countries. Chef Thomas Keller, president of the Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, said, "We're proud of the team's performance. We increased three positions from the competition in 2011, so we are moving in the right direction."
