Prepare yourselves for the ultimate game of musical chairs. Or, in this case, musical kitchens.
The likes of René Redzepi, Albert Adrià, and Dominique Crenn will join a total of 37 chefs who will be swapping their culinary domains for a spectacular gastronomic event on July 9.
The Grand Gelinaz Shuffle is a worldwide restaurant swap that will offer diners a variety of eight-course menus that are promised to be ‘unforgettable’. The chefs themselves may, however, end up with an even more interesting experience, given they’ll be swapping more than kitchens.
The 37 participants will also pledge their homes, offering fellow chefs an entire life swap, driving each others cars and even dining with each others families.
“The line-up for this performance is a family of chefs, who take risk as a starting point, that are neither fearful of creativity, nor driven by ego, but are fuelled by a desire to explore,” said culinary critic and “connector” Andrea Petrini. “The result has been incredible. A coming together of legendary names of the gastronomic world, side by side with some lesser known, but equally exciting ‘indie’ talent."
A new video campaign promoting the event is now online at www.gelinaz.com and tickets have already gone live via the site.
