The Fine Dining Lovers Food for Thought Award is promoted by Fine Dining Lovers, the digital platform by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna dedicated to fine food and drinking that has become over years a very authoritative voice of global gastronomy.

The award is presented to the young chef at each of the Regional Finals who best express their personal belief within their signature dish. The award is available to be won at the regional level as well as during the Grand Finale in 2020.


This award, along with the other two (S.Pellegrino Award for Social Responsibility and Acqua Panna Award for Connection in Gastronomy) form part of the important changes introduced in this edition of the competition. They reflect S.Pellegrino’s belief in nurturing and supporting young culinary talent that serve to secure a better future for gastronomy.
