Enrique Olvera Wins the Global Gastronomy Award 2017

The White Guide has named pioneering Mexican chef Enrique Olvera as the recipient of the 11th edition of their Global Gastronomy Award.

Olvera Unlocking Culinary Secrets

The revolutionary chef was chosen for “having elevated Mexican classics and beloved street food to new heights, bridging modesty and sophistication, hindsight and modernity – and for bringing the rich spectrum of regional fare into the limelight, including indigenous and ancient delicacies, whose secrets he has successfully unlocked” the team behind the guide report.

Olvera's Mexico City restaurant Pujol, recognised in the World's 50 Best Restaurants champions the very heart of Mexican cuisine with street snacks at its core. Olvera's commitment to "unlocking the secrets of regional Mexican" or “grandma cooking” through to his restaurant's best known dish, Mole Madre (which has been reheated for more than 1,200 days) are just two examples of his unfaltering culinary dedication.
