Tickets for the Gelinaz shuffle are now on sale for what promises to be one of the major gastronomic events of the year. The event, which takes place on July 9 sees a global collaboration of 37 of the world’s best chefs taking part.
More details of the event have emerged as the tickets were put on sale.
Chefs from countries like Japan, Chile, Brazil, Slovenia, France, Turkey, Sweden, Thailand, Australia, UK, Italy, Peru, Spain, Canada, Belgium and Denmark and all throughout the United States will take part in an unprecedented international restaurant swap.
Each guest chef, after having found out the results of the Gelinaz! ballot will travel of the country of destination three days prior to the event to prepare his or her unique and unrepeatable 8-course menu. They will not take ingredients from home; they will prepare dishes combining their culinary approach with what they find on location. It will therefore be a fusion of 2 remarkable chef’s personalities. You therefore have to expect the unexpected.
But what is all the more interesting is that by buying the ticket, you are agreeing to partake in a culinary surprise because guests will not be aware of the identity of their chef prior to the night.
Are you willing to risk missing out on a chef you might always have wanted to visit but never got the chance to do so?

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.
