For the last two weeks I have been confined to a cellar…ok don’t feel too sorry for me. It was in a beautiful part of London and I was learning about wine.

And then when you go to buy your ingredients you hope that there are still some good ones left.

Every year hundreds of restaurants around the globe are nominated for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants; the most prestigious restaurant awards and only a lucky 50 get through. If you wanted to cross them all off then you really could eat your way around the world.
