The growing appeal of private batch and single barrell programmes has paved the way for great depth in the landscape of bourbon for the most serious of conoisseurs. In an Australian exclusive, Wild Turkey recently launched Russell’s Reserve Private Select Limited Edition bourbon, hand-picked by Master Distiller Eddie Russell. Deeply complex with flavours of caramel, liquorice and vanilla, with subtle nuances derived from the barrel in which it matures, try these two cocktail recipes when entertaining your guests.
The exclusive event is ahead of the inaugural edition of The World Restaurant Awards being held in the Palais Brongniart in (Paris time) on Monday night.
Amanda Cohen, Mauro Colagreco, Kylie Kwong and Virgilio Martinez were among the gastronomy stars in attendance last night at the official Ron Zacapa rum opening event for The World Restaurant Awards 2019.
A new entry in the world of awards for culinary excellence, The World Restaurant Awards is celebrating the excellence, integrity, diversity and rich culture of the restaurant world, rather than awarding for the pinnacle of achievement. The awards were created by IMG, in partnership with restaurant journalist Joe Warwick working alongside gastronomic writer and broadcaster Andrea Petrini.
The judging panel, with a 50/50 gender split, consists of some of the leading lights of the culinary world, including some of the most established and rising chefs, food writers and professionals.
Chefs on the panel include luminaries such as Elena Arzak, Alex Atala, Massimo Bottura, David Chang, Hlne Darroze, Daniel Humm, Dan Barber, Ren Redzepi, Ana Rosh, Yotam Ottolenghi and Clare Smyth.
Guests at the Zacapa rum welcome event in Malro, Paris savoured exquisite Zacapa Old Fashioned cocktails and small plates curated by Malro head chef, Denny Imbroisi.
