Good ideas without good leadership often go to waste. It’s clear that to enjoy a good meal, you need good coordination and diligence which must go hand in hand with attention to detail in all aspects, despite the food itself being the basic ingredient for a restaurant to offer good service.
In order to award chefs’ ability when it comes to organising and creating in the kitchen, “The Best Chef Awards“, an event that recognises the world’s top 300 chefs, were created in 2016. The judging panel to choose the best chef is made up of critics, other chefs and experts. In its second edition, which took place in Warsaw on the 25th of October, the winner was Joan Roca, chef of the prestigious restaurant “El Celler de Can Roca“.
The best female chef: Chantel Dartnall
One feature of this list is that men and women compete against each other. The first female name we find is that of South AfricanChantel Dartnall (Restaurant Mosaic). She is trained in classic French cuisine but her creations currently fall more into the category of modern cuisine linked to nature and botanics. Her dishes show creativity, delicacy, elegance, essence and great balance.
