The Best Chef is to bring exceptional gastronomic talent to the fore. Amsterdam is the perfect stage for this, as a young and extremely exciting culinary scene has developed here, which is also increasingly moving into the spotlight internationally. “We are in close contact with the best chefs from the Netherlands, many of whom are in Amsterdam, and have been accompanying them for many years,” explains Joanna Slusarczyk, one of the co-founders of
The Best Chef.
After the successful events in Warsaw (2017), Milan (2018) and Barcelona (2019), unfortunately “only” one VIRTUAL2020 edition could take place last year. But now it’s: Back to “Live”. Back to Reality! “2020 was the worst year in the world that our industry has ever had, but that cannot stop us. We have tried even more to offer the most attractive platform possible on which chefs and restaurateurs from all over the world can exchange and inform themselves. At the same time we are looking forward to finally being able to see each other again in person, ”said Slusarczyk.
