Chefs preparing food for an audience


Some of the leading chefs from around the globe are coming to Victoria next April to discover which will be crowned world’s best.

Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, which is an RACV partner, has pulled off a coup by luring eight chefs whose restaurants have featured on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. The chefs will host masterclasses on 1 and 2 April as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards will be announced on 5 April at the Royal Exhibition Building, only the second time the prestigious awards that recognise excellence in global gastronomy have been held outside London.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants has partnered with Tourism Australia to bring the awards to Melbourne. A program of events will be held from 1-7 April, showcasing the best of Australia’s food and wine culture to the chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers and world media that will be in Melbourne for the awards.

This event forms part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, which will run from 31 March to 9 April.

Attica in Ripponlea, Melbourne, is, at number 33, Australia’s only Top 50 restaurant. Italy’s Osteria Francescana in Modena is the current number one.

More than 1000 food writers, critics, chefs and restaurateurs from around the world vote for the awards, basing their choices on their best restaurant experiences of the previous 18 months.

As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival partnership, RACV members will get the chance to win 70 tickets to Regional World’s Longest Lunches across Victoria on Friday 31st March 2017; win a VIP Weekend MasterClass Ultimate Celebration for 30 people and the chance to win a VIP guided winery tour.

Details will be published in a future edition of RoyalAuto and online.
