Lyon Chef: Top Cooks Face Off

It's known as the World Cup of Cooking: a competition held in Lyon, France, where chefs have exactly five hours to turn an assigned batch of ingredients into haute or nouvelle cuisine. This year they were given monkfish and veal to work with. And the winner: a young French Chef named Serge Vieira. The top prize is $26,000 and a statuette that looks like an Oscar, in a chef's hat.
