Here They Are The 100 Top Chefs In The World

Le Chef Magazine just released the full list of the 100 top chefs in the world for 2020, with chef Mauro Colagreco from the Mirazur restaurant in Menton, named the best chef in the world.

It is no surprise that the Argentine-Italian chef from the restaurant located on the French Riviera adds the recognition to a string of accolades achieved in 2019. From winning three Michelin stars and being elected Chef of the Year 2019 by his peer group to winning the title of the Best Restaurant in the world this summer by topping The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list 2019.

The top three places in the list are occupied to French-based chefs with Chef Christophe Bacquié from Restaurant Christophe Bacquié being named second, and last year’s winner, Arnaud Donckele from La Vague d’Or, following up in third. As usual, French chefs dominate the top 10 with six of the world’s best chefs listed in France.

Chef Rene Redzepi from Noma is back again to the top ten, moving up five places to number five and is joined by four other chefs from outside of France, USA’s Dan Barber from Blue Hill Farm, Jonnie Boer from De Librije in The Netherlands and Bjorn Frantzen from Restaurant Frantzen in Sweden.

French chefs retain the most places on the historically French-influenced list with 30 ranked chefs, Spain is in 2nd place with 11 ranked chefs, tied with Japan.
