The World Gourmet Festival will start 1st March 2015 – Top restaurants across the globe offer their interpretation of the World Gourmet Society’s mission to discover new culinary landscapes in the form of a side menu.

This year the ambassador of the festival will be the three Michelin Starred Demon Chef Alvin Leung from Hong Kong.

“Discover New Culinary Landscapes” is the mission of the World Gourmet Society (WGS) and its members. To bring this mission to life WGS has worked with more than 10 top chefs to translate that mission into a side menu to be presented to the gourmet community at the second Global World Gourmet Society Festival.

WGS is a worldwide club of gourmet and food enthusiasts. The society currently numbers more than 21,000 members worldwide on LinkedIn and is the largest group of its kind. The WGS website brings a smaller and more exclusive group of food enthusiasts together and offers its members the opportunity to build a detailed gourmet profile and network with likeminded food lovers.

The festival will not take place at one venue. The menus will be offered during four festival-weeks in restaurants around the world. Some participating restaurants are the Magazine Restaurant and its chef Emmanuel Eger in London, 2 Michelin starred Chef Edwin Vinke from De Kromme Watergang in the Netherlands and Michelin starred Chef Andreas Döllerer from Döllerer’s Genusswelten in Austria. Further festival participation comes from Italy, Portugal, the Bahamas, Germany and other countries.

The festival will be complemented with a Guide that features all menus, provides an insight in the gourmet world of the chefs that have created the menus to discover new culinary landscapes and features the participating restaurants.

“It is my sincerest wish that all participating restaurants experience great moments when they present their dishes to their guests”

“All guests should not only enjoy their dinner but also discover a new culinary landscape. I hope that all those who download this World Gourmet Festival guide but who cannot visit a restaurant get inspired by reading about what other food cultures have to offer” says Matthias Tesi Baur, founder of the World Gourmet Society.
