The World's 50 Best Restaurant List.


Recommended Posts

I and three of my pals from Turkey have written a substantive essay on the above topic. I think you will like it. It is a co-production of Gastromondiale (www.gastromondiale.com) and my newly-renamed site Restaurant Politics. (www.restaurantpolitics.com). I have also posted on my own an essay that is about two polar opposites: The World's 50 Best Restaurants list and the Slow Food's 'Osterie d'Italia".

That's a thoughtful article, Robert. Thanks for sharing it.

 

The link in Eat Like a Peruvian touches on some of these issues. The need for Peruvian chefs to promote the ingredients, while strengthening the young chefs of tomorrow. Creating value, and a future income for people in the business. The three Lima restaurants mentioned in the article have agreed to leverage their mention in the World's 50 Best list precisely to energize more price, more participation, etc.

I think you're misreading Robert et al.'s article. Their point -- with which I heartily agree -- is that restaurants like Central disregard (and by their success help destroy) Peruvian culture rather than perpetuate it. They're a bad influence, not a good one. And their ostentatious "ethical" projects are sanctimonious at best, hyprocritical at worst -- and an attempt to get attention from the SP "gastronauts" in any event.
