THE BEST CHEF AWARDS 2019
THE HIGHLIGHTS

#BARCELONAMMXIX

On the 23rd and 24th of September, the city of Barcelona was the setting for a two-day event that was entirely dedicated to haute cuisine. After the brand new Food Meets Science symposium and Area Talks, the award gala at the University of Barcelona was the climax of this culinary event. In the presence of guests from all over the world, chef Björn Frantzén won The Best Chef Top100 Award powered by Barilla, followed by chef Joan Roca (winner of the two previous editions) in second and chef David Muñoz in third place.
