Thirteen great chefs offering this mythic dish on their menu proposed their own recipe. Whether their creation was traditional or modernized they all competed for the title of Worldwide œufs en meurette Champion. After tasting all the plates the jury made up of experts appointed the Champion according to nine criteria marked from 1 to 9.
