Sue Woodward, Director of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants says:
“The number of restaurants in Asia on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list has been increasing year on year and we believe that the restaurant industry in Asia is ready for a credible and transparent restaurant list. The region’s dining scene is rich in diversity, yet relatively undiscovered and the dedicated list for Asia will allow us to highlight more of this talent than we can in the Worlds 50 Best Restaurants List.”
“We want to encourage a shared fraternity of top chefs in Asia, similar to what we have in London, bringing together the best chefs, sharing ideas and celebrating gastronomy together”, added Woodward.
But back to Shanghai...at this prestige event, well-known chefs, VIPs and media were treated to a plethora of gastronomic treats created by Chef Paul Pairet and his team. With the announcement of the launch of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants here in China, Asia now awaits the gathering of the best chefs sharing ideas and celebrating the world of gastronomy together.
