The World’s 50 Best Restaurants has today announced that its 2019 awards and events programme, sponsored by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will take place in Singapore.
The 2019 location marks a new era for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, with Singapore being the first city in Asia to host the world’s most important annual gourmet gathering, after hugely successful editions in Bilbao this year, Melbourne in 2017 and New York in 2016. The World’s 50 Best Restaurants made the move several years ago to hold the global event in various gastronomic hotspots across the world to encourage greater discovery of different cuisines and fresh experiences for leading chefs and for the wider dining public.
The much-anticipated awards ceremony, often referred to as the Oscars of the culinary world, is preceded by a full programme of associated events and activities for consumers and renowned names in the restaurant world. Visitors and locals will be able to attend a series of events including #50BestTalks, presented by Miele, to hear about the latest trends in gastronomy and partake in discussions on topical issues around food, as well as to attend masterclasses and dinners by some of the world’s greatest chefs. 50 Best and Singapore Tourism Board will also collaborate on an interactive culinary student programme.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will be welcoming the globe’s leading chefs to The Chefs’ Feast ahead of the awards ceremony, an opportunity for them to enjoy the gastronomic delights that Singapore has to offer, share ideas and celebrate together.
