According to this recent CNN article
, the world's best restaurant is in Denmark. Noma
, as it is called, finally dethroned Ferran Adria's El Bulli
, which held the top spot for the past four years. If you're wondering how such a list is made, here's how: the "illustrious list is compiled by The World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy
-- an 806-member panel of the globe's most venerated chefs, food critics, restaurateurs and gourmands."
I'm familiar with Michelin and with James Beard; but to be quite honest, until now, I've not heard of this award or the organization behind it. But I'm not so much concerned about this as I am more interested in answering this question: How can I be member #807?
