His Mexico City restaurant Pujol has been voted in the top 10 of Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants for the past two years and stands at No.16 in The World's 50 Best; his new restaurant Cosme opened in New York last year to widespread critical acclaim, and he has served as an influence to some of the most successful chefs all around the world.

It's hard to believe Enrique Olvera is still in his thirties – the Mexican cook has achieved more than many will in an entire career. No surprise then, that he adds The Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award – Latin America 2015 to his string of accolades.
