(HawaiiNewsNow) - Chef de Partie Sonny Acosta Jr. is putting the finishing touches on his Bocuse d'Or themed menu. He was selected to prepare the Next Generation Dinner to benefit the Bocuse d'Or USA Foundation. Chef Alan served on the Culinary Council for the Bocuse d'Or USA Foundation from 2009 - 2011, and he was the only chef representing Hawaii. Because of Chef Alan's involvement with Bocuse d'Or, Sonny was able to apply to compete in the first-ever Bocuse d'Or Commis Competition, and he was selected as one of only four competitors. His Next Generation Dinner menu is inspired by his experience. The Next Generation Dinner will be held on March 28, 2012.
