The Best Chef Awards returns to Spain

Written by: Edward Waddell
The sixth edition of the Best Chef Awards, powered by Perlage, will return to Spain from 18-20 September.

The event will include the Area Talks debates, the Food Meets Science conference and will close with the grand Awards Gala where  this year's list of the best 100 chefs in the world will be revealed. The Best Chef works every day to promote gastronomy and the talent of chefs, in a fresh, modern and inclusive way.

Madrid will be in charge of hosting professionals, journalists, foodies and chefs from all over the world for a new edition of the Best Chef Awards. After successfully celebrating editions in Warsaw in 2017, Milan in 2018, Barcelona in 2019, a virtual edition in 2020 and the great return to Amsterdam in 2021, Madrid will become the centre of the culinary world.

Joanna Slusarczyk, one of the creators of The Best Chef, said: Madrid city and the region are amazing - full of culture, flavours, amazing chefs, and projects worth sharing. Every time we visit, we leave in awe of the gastronomic level and for us it is an honour to be able to host the next edition of The Best Chef Awards there.”

Starting on March 11th and for 50 days, the Best Chef announced two candidates per day via their social media channels. These new candidates were carefully selected by 120 independent experts from the gastronomic world.

This year the Best Chef gives out 13 special awards on top of the famous top100 list. It’s a way to offer special recognition to chefs that stand out in specific areas or subjects. The awards include Best Chef Pastry, Best Chef Rising Star, Best Chef Science and Best Chef New Entry.
