Dekton® and “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018”
June 12, 2018
Dekton® will be the sponsor and official worktop partner of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018, re-affirming its leadership in the world of international gastronomy.
This year, Dekton® sponsors the Sustainable Restaurant Award 2018, and Santiago Alfonso, Cosentino Vice-President of Communications and Marketing, will hand over the precious statuette to the winner. As the main sponsor, Dekton® by Cosentino will have a booth located in the Palacio itself, where a Dekton® worktop in the colour Orix will bring power, personality and beauty to a location whose central theme is the element ‘fire’. The Spanish brand Cinco Jotas will occupy a space next to the Cosentino booth, where visitors can taste the best Iberian ham and fall in love with a marvellous Dekton® worktop in the colour Domoos.
Santiago Alfonso, Cosentino Vice-President of Communications and Marketing: ‘As a Spanish company whose work has created particularly strong ties with the gastronomy and restaurant sectors, at Cosentino we are proud that this important event is being held in our country, and particularly in the city of Bilbao, with its rich gastronomy.’ Bilbao is the provincial capital of Vizcaya, the region home to four of the restaurants currently ranked among the top forty of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 list: Asador Etxebarri (#6), Mugaritz (#9), Arzak (#30) and Azurmendi (#38).
For the first time, Spain will play host to this event, known as the ‘Oscars’ of cooking, with the city of Bilbao chosen as the epicentre of this prestigious celebration. The list of winners will be revealed next Tuesday, 19 June, at a ceremony that will be held at Bilbao’s Palacio Euskalduna. The ceremony will be able to be seen directly across:
