A tribute to the products and their producers

Gastronomy is an intimate story between the cooks and producers. This is why this relationship is put in the spotlight each year with 4 mandated local products for the candidates to work with.

Through the various dishes made during the contest, it’s an actual tribute to the wealth of the Grand Est (France) region’s gastronomic patrimony.

The Trophée selections outside of France also proceed to the choice of their own mandated local products.

Since its start in 2010, the Trophée Mille had:


who saw their products being highlighted within the dishes

300 candidates

of all nationalities who participated at the contest


from all corners of the world, which joined the adventure


MOF*, MAF* and starred Chefs who rated and supported the young candidates
