The Fat Duckrestaurant, which was runner-up last year, claimed the coveted top spot. Owner and head chefHeston Blumenthal opened his restaurant ten years ago and soon developed a reputation forhighly experimental and unorthodox dishes. The menu includes leather, oak and tobaccochocolates, sardine on toast sorbet, snail porridge, and mousse dipped in liquid nitrogen. He isself-taught and has pioneered the art of “molecular gastronomy” - experiments with chemistry,physics, food and flavour that result in unique and unusual taste combinations. Nearly 600international restaurant owners, chefs and journalists participated in the poll to rank the bestrestaurants worldwide. A further thirteen British restaurants made it onto the elite eateries list,four in the top ten. This gives the home of fish and chips an unusual reputation as a culinaryparadise. Britain is infamous for its bland and uninspiring food, which is scoffed at by the moresophisticated palates of its French neighbours. However, it seems the tide is turning: France hadonly eight restaurants in the top fifty and London was named in March by Gourmet magazine asthe Gourmet Capital of the World. Ella Johnston, editor of Restaurant magazine, said Britishpeople are now “becoming more adventurous eaters”.
