Massimo Bottura is a heavyweight in the world of gastronomy. With a career spanning over three decades, his restaurant Osteria Francescana in Italy was voted The World’s Best Restaurant last year – an achievement that elicits both pride and gratitude. “Every morning I look in the mirror and I say to myself: you’re so lucky. You’re living such a great life and you have to keep going like that and say thank you every day,” he says.

Osteria Francescana, which nestles in the small historic town of Modena in northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, has firmly held a place in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list for the last eight years and currently ranks No.2. Bottura has been named Italy’s top chef by Gambero Rosso, the country’s most renowned food rating group, and has won a prestigious Gran Prix de l’Art de la Cuisine from the International Academy of Gastronomy in Paris, among many other accolades.

In our new Best and Beyond series, presented by Miele, we hear from five of the finest chefs on the planet, all of whom own restaurants that have been named No.1 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants over the list's history – Ferran Adrià, chef-owner of the first ever No.1 in the list, El Bulli, Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park (No.1 in 2017), Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana (No.1 in 2016), Joan Roca of El Celler de Can Roca (No.1 in 2013 and 2015) and René Redzepi of Noma (No.1 in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014).

On the occasion of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’s 15th Anniversary in Barcelona, we gathered these global super chefs in one room and asked them about what they’ve learned over the course of their careers, how they continually strive for greatness and what nuggets of knowledge they’d like to pass on to future generations. From René Redzepi never truly believing that Noma was the best restaurant in the world to Ferran Adrià admitting he thinks he knows nothing, their answers were sometimes surprising, often entertaining and always inspiring.
