Massimo Bottura - 3rd best restaurant in the world 2014

I thought I'd share this video of one of the world's leading chefs. Check out the little baby Kamado in the background (at 1:47)!

I just started watching Chef's Table on Netflix last night and the first episode was all about Massimo. Pretty interesting guy.

Me too!!! :) I'm really enjoying this Netflix thing!
I saw the little Kamado in the background during the episode on Netflix and then found a youtube of it as well.

Netflix is Great! I've had Netflix (US) and Hulu for years...it's about time they got it down under!

Yeah, I still have my Netflix set to US... and occasionally flick over to UK or Canada as well if there's a certain show I want to watch 8)

Haven't even looked at the Aussie Netflix to be honest...

I'm on AU Netflix and am trialling it for a month for free. Well worth the $12 per month they are asking for HD content. What I like about the AU version is that it is completely hassle free and very easy to watch on the big telly.

I'm still on Netflix US and have 6 months on Presto for free courtesy of Telstra, which seems OK so far. (Are we off topic ? :) )

Forgive me, as I now live in Mayberry and I have a metered internet usage, so video watching is off limits! What is 1 & 2?

Hi Bent,

check out the list, some pretty big names on there. I think Noma have been number 1 for a few years now...

Idiotic circles I sometimes run in Bent, I can count three in the top 50, and, you know what ?

Pretty damned ordinary, willing to bet what your residence produces would exceed :)

That really is interesting to hear...As a young man I got to eat in what I considered 3 Iconic restaurants...La Tour d'Argent, the Eiffel Tower when it had the restaurant about half way up it and Simpson's...I guess 1 is gone and the other 2 are not as highly regarded as they were in the early 70's!

It can be a fad as much as anything - when I was very much younger one of my bosses used to sort of hold court at the Dorchester in London - I can't say the food ever impressed much but it was THE place to eat in London back then :)

I do remember that restaurant in the Eiffel tower, was not bad :)

When you go to a flash restaurant you are just paying the LOMBARD tax for some obsessive compulsive to fondle your food
