Angelo Sirocco is in Milan to make South Africa proud
On the 26th of June, Milan, the city that is hosting the world with Expo 2015, will embrace twenty young chefs coming from all over the planet to show their talent and creativity and to achieve the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 award.
To win the much coveted prize, they will submit their signature dishes to a jury of seven famous international chefs, “seven sages” like Gastón Acurio, Yannick Alléno, Massimo Bottura, (our very own) Margot Janse, Yoshihiro Narisawa, Joan Roca and Grant Achatz. Just one winner will be selected by this panel.
The Grand Finale event will be full of surprises. Thanks to the partnership with Vogue Italia, S.Pellegrino’s ally in its unabated commitment to scouting and promoting talent, some other important prizes will be awarded.
Vogue Italia matched each young chef with an emerging designer, selected through an international scouting. These designers ideated a fashion creation inspired by their partner’s signature dish, thus giving birth to an unprecedented fusion between fine food and style.
During the Grand Finale, two prizes for the the Best Chef-Designer couple will be awarded. One will be selected thanks to the votes of all the guests attending the event, a parterre made of vips, influencers, chefs, and international journalists. The other will be assigned via Vogue.it, the online edition of the highly renowned and influential magazine, where all the Chef and Designer creations have been published, enabling food and fashion lovers from around the world to vote their favourite.
Last but not least, the best talented designers will also receive an award assigned by Vogue Italia as Best Designer. This will be determined by a jury led by Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia, Editorial Director of Condé Nast Italia. Global Ambassador against Hunger ( WFP), and composed by Massimiliano Giorgetti, Ennio Capasa, Alberta Ferretti, Sara Maino, Marlene Taschen, Giò Marconi.
Finedininglovers.com , the online magazine for food enthusiasts proudly endorsed by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, will continue to provide foodies exclusive contents and constant updates about the project, with interviews, signature dishes and other information concerning the young chefs, the fashion designers and the Grand Finale in Milan.
