Estonian president of Bocuse d’Or inducted into Académie Culinaire de France

The annual assembly of the Académie Culinaire de France in Paris on 28 January saw the induction of 22 new members, each of whom has made a significant contribution to the development of French gastronomy. The only representative of a country other than France to receive this honour was Estonian Culinary Institute founder and Bocuse d’Or Estonia president Dimitri Demjanov.

The academy comprises head chefs who have had the greatest impact on world gastronomy, the majority of whom have Michelin stars to their name – including Joël Robuchon (the man to have been awarded the most Michelin stars of any chef to date), Paris Ritz chef Michael Roth, a number of instructors from Le Cordon Bleu chefs academy and many other leading figures in the fine art of cuisine from around the world.

Also attending the induction ceremony were Estonian ambassador to France Sven Jürgenson and his wife, the head chefs to the French president and French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and around a hundred members of the academy. Demjanov was presented with his diploma and testimonial by secretary-general of the academy Gérard Bor.

Dimitri Demjanov is a food judge in the international category and the Estonian president of Bocuse d’Or. He runs the restaurants Egoist and Gloria, the latter of which was named by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the 100 best restaurants in the world in 2006. It also won the Silver Spoon award in the same year. Gloria is the oldest continually operating restaurant in Estonia and this year celebrates its 75th anniversary.
