Top 10 from 2013

2013 has been a fantastic year for food.  I had the opportunity to eat at some incredible places throughout the world.  Here are my Top 10 in no particular order.  These chef’s and food enthusiast have succeeded in exciting, satisfying and doing a damn good job.  We need more establishments like these – quality ingredients prepared well.  Happy New Year and enjoy!

1) Maha – Middle Eastern Cuisine in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.  Well thought out food, exotic flavours and professional service.

2) N2 Extreme Gelato located in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia.  By far the best gelato I’ve ever tasted.

10) Fresh Oysters on the scenic Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS, Canada

In 2013 gluten free, salted caramel and nose to tail eating all became trendy within the food world.  I expect these trends to continue into 2014, but I’d like to see more street food in the Western World, a bigger focus on unknown fish and more frequent use of game and uncommon animal parts in modern cuisine.  The world of food is ever-evolving and I look forward to the adventure ahead.  Thanks for the support in 2013, it was a good year, but 2014 is only going to get better.
