The Gelinaz! gang, a collective of chefs that was formed by Italian food journalist Andrea Petrini have announced an interesting plan as their next project.
37 of the world’s best chefs from 17 different countries will swap places with each other and take over the respective restaurants for a day. The event takes place on July 9. Chefs come from countries such as Japan, Chile, Brazil, France, Sweden, Italy, UK, Peru, Spain, Belgium, Denmark and the United States among others.
Tickets go on sale from May 13. The question being asked is who will be cooking in which restaurant?
The full list of chefs taking part in this incredible shuffle are the following: Albert Adria, Danny Bowien, Blaine Wetzel, Jock Zonfrillo, Riccardo Camanini, Fulvio Pierangelini, Inaki Aizpitarte, Davide Scabin, Massimiliano Alajmo, Claude Bosi, Sean Gray, Magnus Nilsson, Colombe Saint-Pierre, Bertrand Grebaut, Rene Redzepi, Ben Shewry, Alexandre Gauthier, Paul Cunningham, Ana Ros, Kobe Desramaults, Alain Ducasse, Yannick Alleno, Yoshihiro Narisawa, Virgilio Martinez, Mauro Colagreco, Dominique Crenn, Sean Brock, Rodolfo Guzman, Daniel Patterson, Andoni Luiz Aduriz, David Thompson, Mehmet Gurs.

Gelinaz! is a collective of international chefs. It promises to push boundaries and take risk as a starting point. The aim of the chefs is to discover new cultures and to exchange knowledge. They want to invent collaborations with artists, musicians, scientists, thinkers and producers, never repeating themselves and exploring the unknown, charting new territories to sharpen creativity and zooming on the beauty of nature and its elegant chaos.
In 2013, the chefs met in Ghent and Lima. This was followed last year by 28 chefs taking over the kitchen of Wylie Dufresne in New York to pay a tribute to one of the most distinguished avant-garde chefs.
In July last year, they met for a Gelinaz spiritual retreat in Tuscany to prepare future Gelinaz! gigs for the next three years.
This promises to be one of the major gastronomic events of the year.
