Björn Frantzén won the Best Chef Top100 Award for 2019.
The 2019-list includes chefs from 24 countries worldwide and features 15 new entries among which is Disfrutar, the restaurant in Barcelona which made the highest jump.
Each year 100 new chefs are selected by The Best Chef’s collaborators and added to the previous year’s Top100 list. Next, all included chefs begin to vote for their peers. The chefs have 10 choices, counting for 1000 points to 100 points, in order to decide who will be the last 100 chef finalists.
They vote for the chef as a person, recognizing his talent, experience, potential as well as his personality.

The awards gala is a global event with chefs from all over the world, travelling from the United States, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Japan and from all over Europe. This year, the chefs attended The Best Chef Awards Gala at the University of Barcelona. Chef Joan Roca (El Celler de Can Roca, Girona, Spain), who won The Best Chef Award in 2017 and 2018, served dinner after the Awards Gala.
