The World's 50 Best Restaurants Method[edit] The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list is compiled from the votes of the "World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy", a group of 27 panels established to make the ranking.[4] The world is divided into regions, with a chairperson in each region appointed for their knowledge of their part of the restaurant world. These chairs each selected a voting panel of 35 members, who cast a total of 5,859 votes. There is no list of nominees; each member of the international voting panel votes for their own personal choice of 7 restaurants. The list has been criticised; writing in The Guardian in 2003 Matthew Fort described the list as "humbug".[5] The French food writer and critic François-Régis Gaudry mentions the lack of reliability of this ranking,[6] while the Spanish chef Martín Berasategui spoke of "rigged" ranking, manipulated by an "important international food company" in order to "cause damage" to the Michelin guide.[7] First place restaurants by year[edit] Other 2012 awards[edit] - getsongbird Resources and Information.

Its program includes three axes, as cooking was recognized to have three components, which are social, artistic and technical.[4] Molecular cuisine is a modern style of cooking, and takes advantage of many technical innovations from the scientific disciplines. The term "molecular gastronomy" was coined in 1988 by late Oxford physicist Nicholas Kurti and the French INRA chemist Hervé This.[5] Some chefs associated with the term choose to reject its use,[6] preferring other terms such as multi sensory cooking, modernist cuisine, culinary physics, and experimental cuisine.
