When it comes to food what does “Luxury” exactly mean? Find out 3 World’s Best Restaurants perspectives…

Could “Luxury Food” be related to some recognized prestige of the “producer brand” only? Is it purely a matter of the Chef? or of the Restaurant? Could it be something similar to the “branded eggs” below?

But coming back to the point, when it comes to food…what does “luxury” exactly mean then?

The answer is clear: Luxury Food means, first of all, intrinsic pure quality of the ingredients.

Concepts like “From farm to fork”, local & seasonal products – even coming from the Restaurant-owned vegetable garden – are the main guidelines of the World’s Best Restaurants.

Luxury food is healthy food, at the very end.
