For the seventh year running, White Guide proudly presented the White Guide Global Gastronomy Award. The distinction is given to a creative chef of international renown or other gastronomic personality, who is still active and who has become an example and inspiration within contemporary gastronomy.
White Guide Global Gastronomy Award winner 2013: Gastón Acurio, Astrid y Gastón and La Mar, Lima, Peru
“For having developed a rich and forward-looking local gastronomy – la Cocina Novoandina – which obtains traditional and new ingredients from the depths of the Pacific, the heights of the Andes, and the jungles of the Amazon, with a potential to solve many of our health and food provision issues, as well as for his great involvement in the catering training of poor South American youngsters.”
Whether you are a ‘foodie’ or not, the White Guide is an invaluable guide and point of reference if you are travelling around Sweden and want to sample the best food the country has to offer. Luckily and democratically, the White Guide gives as much weight to the restaurants in Sweden’s regions and provinces as it does the restaurants of the major cities and towns.
