The Best Chef announces its Top 100 new candidates and a

three-day culinary event in Rotterdam

Rotterdam, March 03, 2020 – Today, The Best Chef officially announced the Top 100 new candidates for the 2020 Awards, as well as their plans for this year’s event. On the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of September, the world’s leading culinary platform will host the Food Meets Science conference, the Area Talks live debate, and the Award Gala in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

 

The Top 100 new candidates and voting process

Each year, 100 new chefs are selected by The Best Chef’s independent partners. France, Spain, USA, Brazil, the Netherlands and the UK represent the most new candidates for the 2020 list.

This year, the voting will start on the 1st of April. All chefs included in the 2019 list, plus the new candidates for 2020, will be invited to vote for their peers. Additionally, a selection of culinary professionals, photographers and foodies is asked to vote for their favorite chefs. The panel scores 10 chefs, awarding them between 100 and 1000 points. They vote for the chef as a person, recognizing the chef’s talent, experience and personality. The 100 best-performing chefs make up The Best Chef Awards 2020 Top 100. This year, a new awards category will be launched - The ‘Science’ Award is a distinction for the chef who is outstanding in relation to research, experimental techniques and transformation.

In the last stage of the voting procedure, social media followers can vote for their favorite chef, awarding them with the The Best Chef fol-LOVERS award.

The Praise of "Culinary" Folly

"There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other."

Desiderius Erasmus from Rotterdam

A three-day culinary event in Rotterdam

Following on from Warsaw in 2017, Milan in 2018 and Barcelona in 2019, Rotterdam has been selected as the host city for The Best Chef Awards 2020. This year, the platform provides an enhanced three-day event programme. The Food Meets Science conference creates a dialogue between top-notch speakers from the world of science and gastronomy. The Area Talks live debate engages top chefs, foodies and experts in discussions on traditions, the roots of different cuisines and other contemporary topics in gastronomy. The highlight of the three-day event will be the awards gala, where the winners of The Best Chef Awards 2020 will be announced.

Cristian Gadau, Creative Director and Founder of The Best Chef, explains: “We are delighted to organize a prestigious event like The Best Chef Awards in Rotterdam, as the Netherlands plays an important role in contemporary gastronomy. This inspiring event is a unique gathering of top chefs from all over the world so it’s the perfect opportunity for the community, international visitors and industry professionals to stay up-to-date with what’s hot and happening in the global world of haute cuisine, as well as to connect them with their peers.”
