Worlds 50 Best Rest Awards 2015 Picmonkey

TASTE News Service, October 17, 2016 - After a successful 2016 edition in New York City, The World's 50 Best Restaurants has announced that its 2017 awards will take place in Melbourne in April. The flagship event, celebrating its 15th anniversary, will be hosted at the city's historic Royal Exhibition Building on the evening of 5th April.

The World's 50 Best Restaurants has partnered with Tourism Australia to bring the series to its new home for 2017, where world-leading chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, media and influencers will gather to celebrate the very best in global gastronomy. The overall event program, running from 1st-7th April, will showcase Australia's outstanding food and wine culture to an international audience of industry professionals and food lovers.

William Drew, Group Editor of The World's 50 Best Restaurants, said, “After 14 years hosting the awards event in London, we decided to take The World's 50 Best Restaurants on a global tour, kicking off in New York in June 2016. Now we could not be more thrilled to be moving to Melbourne, one of the great food cities of the world, in 2017.

The World's 50 Best Restaurants is an annual gastronomic gathering, with chefs and restaurateurs from across the planet coming together to celebrate and collaborate. Wine Australia will provide wines of the highest caliber throughout the program, which includes the traditional Chefs' Feast – a unique private gathering of the finest culinary talent in the world taking place on 4th April – as well as further satellite events.

Wine Australia's CEO, Andreas Clark, commented, “This event is a wonderful opportunity for the world's most influential people in food and wine to experience the fine wine Australia produces. We are excited to showcase the innovation, quality and diversity that Australian winemakers are known for as we bring a taste of our most renowned wine regions to Melbourne.”

How The World's 50 Best Restaurants list is compiled

The list is created from the votes of The World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 1,000 international leaders in the restaurant community. The panel in each region is made up of food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded 'gastronomes'. Members list their choices in order of preference, based on their best restaurant experiences of the previous 18 months. There is no pre-determined check-list of criteria, but there are strict voting rules.

The World's 50 Best Restaurants list is independently adjudicated by professional services consultancy Deloitte. This adjudication ensures that the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2017 are protected.
