The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2017
Tonight in Melbourne, the hottest ticket in town was to the World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards. The culinary world’s night of nights, I was honoured to be invited to be a part of it all thanks to Miele. Held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, I couldn’t think of a more perfect venue to hold such a prestigious awards ceremony, in my home town.
Whilst I did hang around the Miele stand for a bit, checking out their handleless steam ovens (OMG!), eating their delicious fried chicken baos and drinking their cocktails, I did run around a little with camera in hand stalking chefs and drinking gin!
Our MC for the evening was hilarious, as we counted our way down from 50 to 1. I was honoured to have dined at Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée earlier this year which was granted number 13 on the list, but the ultimate congratulations goes to the new winners, Eleven Madison Park in New York!
