There are many restaurant professionals whose work goes beyond feeding their hungry guests. Some of them do their part for public health, nutrition and the environment every day. The Basque Culinary World Prize has celebrated their commitment for four years. It honours culinary professionals from all over the world for their outstanding contributions to social change.
To be considered for the award, they must be nominated by another industry professional. From all entries, the technical committee chooses ten top candidates for the final. The Basque Culinary Centre International Council, a partner of GastronoMETRO in Turkey, jointly picks the winner during its annual meeting. He or she receives a cash prize of EUR 100,000 in support of an initiative that supports the positive social impact of the restaurant industry.
