News & Events

Sadly, Team New Zealand 2021 is withdrawing from the Bocuse d’Or 2021 final.
 
Many factors have contributed to this unfortunate and emotional decision we have taken: the recent outbreak of the Delta variant in Auckland has forced an alert Level 4 lockdown for the foreseeable future, and we could not continue with our training before departing to France which jeopardize our preparation to the level required to compete. Also, without positive evolution, the uncertainty of returning to New Zealand in a timely manner after the contest is another factor in our decision.
So, although Andrew Ballard and Quillan Gutberlet put an immense effort into their training under such challenging circumstances, and despite that we had a successfully fundraising dinner and auction, and had another scheduled for 30 August, we are truly sorry about this sad outcome. The whole Team and the Academy Trust Board were so proud to have participated in the Bocuse d’Or Social Commitment Award.
 
Finally, we want to thank the Bocuse d’Or Gl-events and SIRHA teams for their commitment and thoughtful assistance during these challenging times, as well as AUT University, sponsors and the wider community who really supported our efforts.
 
We are determined to return!
Sacré COVID19 ! Kia kaha!
