Finally, the winners of the World's 50 Best Restaurants sponsored byS.Pellegrino andAcqua Pannahave been announced. Spain's El Celler de Can Roca took first place and we couldn't be happier for brothers Joan, Josep and Jordi. To celebrate the occasion we've decided to feature recipes from some of the chefs in the top 10.
We begin with Italy's Massimo Bottura, chef at Osteria Francescana, who ranks third in the 2013 World's 50 Best Restaurants list, which is sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. Bottura is known for his avant-garde spin on classic Italian dishes like this foie gras popsicle pictured below.
Ranking at number six on the list is Alex Atala, chef of D.O.M. in Sao Paolo. Atala draws inspiration from local Amazonian ingredients and was recently featured in the Times 100 list of the most influential people in the world. He shared this recipe for banana-lime ravioli made with priprioca, one of his favorite ingredients from the Amazon.
Remaining at the eighth spot on the list is Arzak from Spain. This family restaurant is run by Juan Mari Arzak and his daughter Elena Arzak, the 2012 Veuve Clicquot Female Chef of the Year. Together, they create avant-garde dishes from a pantry that stocks over 1,000 rare ingredients from all over the world. They shared this lemon dessert with honey mead with FDL.
