WEDNESDAY 20 APRIL 2011 • THE 50 BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD
The 50 Best Restaurants in the World
On Monday, it was the San Pellegrino - 50 Best Restaurants in the World. I was pleased to be a guest there, and went along with Mourad, our Directeur de restaurant at Le Manoir. We went to a fabulous venue - the Guildhall in the City of London - to celebrate the event.
The champagne by Veuve Clicquot was perfect, meeting old and new friends too. And I must say bravo to all the chefs. A few injustices from previous years have been corrected, such as Michel Bras great cuisine... and
congratulations to Heston to make it to the top 5 again, without forgetting
our lovely friend Andoni Louis Aduriz from Mugaritz.
Afterwards, though, I went home to make myself a fat omelette with
melting Comte and a lovely glass of Pinot Noir from my native Burgundy! Sometimes the simple things are the best!
The top five restaurants were:
5 The fat duck
2 El Celler de Can Roca
PS Please tell me what you think of my blogs and my website: I want to hear from you!
