By Patrick HiegerAs a precursor to Brazil’s massive Mesa SP festival that’s taking place through this Wednesday, November 5, some of the world’s leading chefs have assembled in São Paulo for the annual G11 summit, put together by Spain’s Basque Culinary Center to discuss modern cuisine and its advancement. This isn’t any typical all-star cast getting together in one room. These are chefs on the cutting edge, and chefs who have been redefining that edge for years.
Chefs like Michel Bras, Ferran Adriá, Enrique Olvera, Rodolfo Guzmán and more are on hand to talk about not just cuisine, but the issues facing the modern culinary world as we know it. Below, get a taste of what this G11 summit, i.e. a room full of the world’s top culinary minds, looks like. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall.
