Focussing on a flavourful experience, this young chef is born to become a culinary god. From Experience to Innovation – meet the Alchemist! 

Dan Cox – Fera at Claridge’s – London UK
Inspired by the seasons, Fera, the Latin word for ‘wild’, reflects the powerful connection to nature at Fera. Head Chef Dan Cox serves tasting menus that capture the true essence of nature through its textures, tastes and sense of perpetual evolution. Will the nature bring us more innovation? 

Soenil Bahadoer – De Lindehof – Nuenen NL

Edwin Vinke – De Kromme Watergang – Hoofdplaat NL
The salty grounds on which Edwin Vinke was born form the basis for his cuisine. Edwin feels a strong connection with nature and innovates with the best that his environment has to offer. This is translated in the dishes, that are bursting with natural flavours. A humble person, always innovating, always smiling.
