50best number1

The ceremony is over!
Results are out and the web is going crazy with comments, critics, surprises, all depending on who you were supporting. While in Melbourne the party must be way into the night, I had my lunch after watching bits and bobs on streaming (God bless the technology!) and keeping an eye on Instagram.

I’m absolutely not going to go into critics or comments. This is about celebrating the effort and talent that all these amazing people put into their work!

I’m very thrilled to see Alex Atala and Massimo Bottura rocking & rolling on the list as great part of their work involves dedication and concearn for the environment and social issues!
Very happy to see lots of South American locations being awarded as well! A continent with incredible raw materials that are put on plates in most superb ways.

A huge congrats to each and anyone of the winners of The World’s 50 Best award!

On a sweet note, Dominique Ansel has reached his top! Besides his trademark creation, the Cronuts, his pastry work is like diamonds for Marilyn Monroe. I remember visiting his NYC store a few years ago. My memory of standing in fronto of the glass windowns simply going WOW! The cronuts I’am yet to try them, as I wasn’t in the mood to queu up at 6 in the morning after booking them online – waiting list goes around 3 months waiting….but the coffee eclair I had was perfection. Period.
