It was a busy year for Food and Wine Gazette but also one that has given us lots of satisfaction.
It has also been a great year in the food and wine world but also one in which we have seen chefs announcing the closure of their restaurants from Rene Redzepi’s Noma to Kobe Desramaults In de Wulf to mention just two names. We have also seen the emergence of new food and wine related scandals and fraud.
It has been the year of restaurant pop-ups and the trend is set to continue into the new year with Alinea moving to Europe and Noma to Australia at the start of the New Year. Chefs have continued to travel like never before bringing their experiences to new territories and countries but also taking back home with them new experiences to share with their home customers.
Issues such as food waste, obesity as well as a number of food or wine related scandals continued to dominate the headlines during 2015 and we see this trend continuing into the New Year.
Many have asked us what our favourite meals, wines or dishes of the year were but there have been so many it would be unfair to list them here and exclude so many others.
Keep following us in 2016 for more news from the food and wine world, interviews, lists of recommendations. We promise to be back in the New Year full of new ideas and articles.
In the meantime we wish you a Happy New Year full of health, joy and happiness.
