Hold on to your forks! The winning trio of the S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition, one of the most thrilling talent searches for the world’s best young chef, will be heading to Tokyo for a special dinner with Michelin-starred chef Luca Fantin this September.
Successive winners Mark Moriarty (2015), Mitch Lienhard (2016) and Yasuhiro Fujio (2018) will join Fantin for an eight-hands dinner to celebrate the future of the culinary world with a range of delicious dishes.
The event will take place at The Ginza Tower in Tokyo’s luxury shopping district – home to the largest Bulgari store in the world, as well as a hotel and Luca’s sleek Italian restaurant. Known for his fine dining finesse, Fantin’s dishes are a showcased balance of aesthetics, aroma, flavour and texture.
