The Gelinaz! gang - a collective of chefs formed by the Italian food journalist Andrea Petrini - have announced interesting plans for their next project that will see some of the world’s best chefs swap restaurants, lives and identities this July.
From their release: 'Each chef will travel to the country of destination three days prior to the event to prepare his or her unique eight-course menu. They will not take ingredients from home; they will prepare dishes combining their culinary approach with the energy of their location'.
There are 37 chefs from 17 countries taking part in the shuffle which is surely set to be one of the most exciting food projects of the year.
The Gelinaz! group are known for their huge events, last year they took over Wylie Dufresne’s restaurant for a huge surprise in New York and the latest Shuffle plans are definitely some of their most ambitious to date.
Tickets will go on sale May 13th but stay tuned as we’ll be bringing you more information about the event very soon. For now, here's David Chang teasing the upcoming event and you can see the full line up of chefs taking part on the Gelinaz! site.
