The impact of Coronavirus on the world’s hospitality industry has been dire and well documented. Here to lend its support, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants organisation is launching its ‘Bid for Recovery’ auction.

Taking place from July 3-July 12, the unprecedented auction will offer more than 100 food and travel experiences (once local borders reopen) from acclaimed chefs and restaurants featured on the most recent World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.

Highlights are set to include time with Mauro Colagreco and his world’s best Mirazur, Menton, France; experiences across Dominique Crenn’s Bleu Belle Farm, Atelier Crenn and Petit Crenn; a four-day odyssey through Singapore’s best including Odette, Burnt Ends and drinks at Atlas as well as a three day Peruvian food safari led by world-renowned husband mad wife team Virgilio Martínez and Pía León, operators of Restaurant Mil in the Andes.

Beyond such incredible experience are multiple auction lots cover rare wines and spirits, private cooking classes, regional wine tours, sailing trips, exclusive tastings, bespoke parties and more.

All the proceeds from the auction will be distributed to restaurants requiring financial relief with independent restaurants and bars across the world able to apply for a direct grant. All additional donations will be used to support not-for-profit organisations supporting restaurants and feeding the hungry across eight different countries.

The announcement of the auction comes as World’s 50 Best joins forces with the Social Gastronomy Movement – a global network of charities across 38 countries committed to providing one million meals to those in need.
