We were honored to host San Pellegrino’s “The World’s 50 Best Chef Luncheon” following the Award’s ceremony. Our London chefs rubbed elbows with winners, including the brothers behind the #1 restaurant, El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain: Executive Chef Joan Roca, Pastry Chef Jordi Roca and Head Sommelier Josep Roca!
The Roca brothers (no. 1 on the list) pose with Arzak Head Chef Juan Mari Arzak (no. 8 on the list) and SUSHISAMBA London Executive Chef Cláudio Cardoso and Sous Chef Daniel Fernandez.
This was Osteria Francescana Head Chef Massimo Bottura’s (no. 3 on the list) second round! He just couldn’t get enough, speed-walking to the serving counter, grabbing platters and promptly delivering them to other chefs at the luncheon.
