Great Chef Series - Alex Atala
Josef Chromy Wines 5th October 2018
Now in its third year, the Great Chefs Series is a collaboration led by Josef Chromy Wines, Tourism Northern Tasmania and TasTAFE Drysdale. The series provides an innovative teaching environment and unique learning opportunities for Tasmanian cookery and kitchen operations students.
Between May and October 2018, Josef Chromy Wines will host a series of 7-course degustation dinners prepared by visiting guest chefs and Tasmanian students. The dinners will feature fine Tasmanian produce matched with premium Josef Chromy wines.
Currently the most influential chef in Brazil, Alex Atala is renowned for his innovative cuisine focused on valuing the Brazilian ingredients, a credo which he has practiced since 1999 in the D.O.M. restaurant, his most awarded house.
Atala has a collection of national and international awards and, in 2013, has entered the list of Time Magazine's 100 most influential personalities. For the last 12 years D.O.M. is on the list of the 50 best restaurants in the world Restaurant Magazine, an English publication of great prestige: it currently occupies the 16th place in the ranking. Alex Atala was also the Chef's Choice (the best chef in the world according to the votes of his colleagues in the “50 Best” list) and, in 2014, he received the Diners Club Award for his work in the election of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America by the same publication.
Since the arrival of the Michelin Guide in Brazil in 2015, two of Alex Atala’s restaurants have been laureates: two Michelin stars for D.O.M. and one star for Dalva and Dito. In the two following editions of the guide, the houses maintained their positions.
