Nominations for the 2017 prize opened this week, and anyone working in the food industry can nominate a candidate for consideration online.
A shortlist of 20 finalists will eventually be selected by a special prize committee of food professionals, covering everything from science to anthropology, culture to cooking. This shortlist of 20 finalists will then be deliberated by a committee of judges, including the likes of Massimo Bottura, Ferran Adria, Rene Redzepi and Dan Barber. The winner will recieve 100,000 Euros prize money to put towards a food related cause of their choice.
Speaking about the prize, Massimo Bottura said: “With this prize, we hope to share with the world stories of chefs who are using gastronomy for a better future, we need people to nominate those who are fighting for it in any way, even in a small scale: we are all part of the revolution.”
