In 2019 S.Pellegrino, the world’s leading sparkling mineral water, marks its 120th Anniversary and flies to Singapore for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna to celebrate this important milestone with a special event aimed at reflecting upon the future of gastronomy with the top chefs’ community and key opinion leaders.

On the morning of Monday 24th June, at the National Gallery, S.Pellegrino presented ‘FOOD MEETS FUTURE’: an interactive exploration of the key aspects of gastronomy in the future, run by some of the most influential top chefs on the international gastronomic scene. Multiple winner of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana in Modena (Italy), star-studded, humanitarian chef José Andres and incredibly talented and creative pastry chef, Janice Wong, are among the personalities that will share their reflections, exploring four key pillars of focus for discussion to secure the future of gastronomy: inclusion, inspiration, responsibility and talent.

Kobus van der Merwe from Wolfgat restaurant in Paternoster attended the event. He won the S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna Eat Out Chef of the Year 2018.

“2019 marks our 120th Anniversary and we are celebrating this important milestone at World’s 50 Best Restaurants by hosting this discussion on the future of gastronomy, with and for the leaders of the international gastronomic community,” says Stefano Marini, International Business Unit Director of Sanpellegrino.

“At S.Pellegrino we strongly believe that in order to preserve the future of gastronomy, together we must focus on nurturing these four pillars: inclusion, inspiration, responsibility, and talent. Therefore our objective is to start a conversation that will inspire the international gastronomic community for years to come.”

In honour of S.Pellegrino’s 120th anniversary, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna has broadened its scope to recognize the best 120 restaurants across the world, adding an additional 20 establishments to its usual top 100 ranking, shining a spotlight on more brilliant chefs and hospitality teams across the globe. The special extended list of restaurants ranked from 51st to 120th was released on 18th June and featured South Africa’s very own La Colombe.
