‘And the winner of the number one best restaurant in the world goes to Noma! – They’ve been in the number one spot before, and judging by their reaction, overwhelmed to be back in it’

A break in formalities, again – but one well worth missing a meal out for. My love for fine dining extends across Europe and globe so when new Michelin stars are awarded – or even more importantly, the new lineup for the The Worlds 50 Best restaurants 2014 is announced – it’s an event that every foodie should know about.

For those of you who don’t know about the awards head over to the website. And for those of you that allready do, or simply don’t care (shame on you) then you can find the new 2014 list below, painstakingly put together, as the night unfolds – Live!
