Tokyo is the place to be this weekend as nine of the world's best chefs convene in the city for the second annual G9 summit. The 'G9' is shorthand for The World Summit of Gastronomy, a gastro-social event where top chefs gather to discuss the future of gastronomy, social responsibility and the world outside their kitchen.
Aside from discussing pressing topics in gastronomy, the chefs will have the opportunity to visit the zone affected by last year's earthquake and tsunami. They are expected to produce a type of manifesto pertaining to the role of chefs in the future.
