Mirazur holds 3 Michelin stars and has a kitchen inspired by the sea, the mountains and the fruits & vegetables grown in Colagreco’s own gardens.

After successfully hosting the event in 2018, Bilbao passed the baton to Singapore, which has now become the first Asian city to host what is already known as the “Oscars” of the gastronomy sector. The event, which took place at the Marina Bay Sands hotel from the 22nd to the 26th of June, brought together dozens of chefs, restaurateurs, industry professionals and media.
From the Cosentino Singapore team, Ross Cameron, Asia Director, Pablo Abad, Singapore General Manager and María Fernández, Asian Marketing Coordinator, attended the event.
Dekton was the event’s official supplier of countertops, and sponsored the different culinary masterclasses run by the best chefs in the world in the days leading up to the main gala. These masterclasses formed part of a dynamic and comprehensive programme of activities that are organized in order to mark this great celebration of international cuisine.
