For the first time in Great Britain and Ireland, restaurants being awarded prestigious new Michelin Stars will be revealed at a live event in October.

The presentation will coincide with the publication of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017 and will be revealed by International Director of the Michelin Guides, Michael Ellis, at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Savoy Place, London on October 3.

Michael said: “We’re very excited about this inaugural event and I’m very much looking forward to celebrating with so many talented people.”

 

He added: “The IET is home to the Institution of Engineering and Technology, whose members have been at the forefront of innovation for more than a century. We felt that was a great fit with Michelin, which also has a proud history of innovation – in both tyre manufacture and the food world.”

The unveiling of new Michelin-Starred restaurants is seen as one of the most important dates in the culinary year, and this will be the first time the selection has been announced at a live event since the first Michelin Guide to the British Isles appeared in 1911.

 

Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, said the 2017 edition would continue to reflect the changing culinary landscape of Great Britain and Ireland.

She added: “The last 10 years have seen the emergence of a host of different types of restaurant producing excellent food under the guidance of extremely talented young chefs.

“Michelin inspectors will continue to make anonymous visits and to pay their own bills, and we will continue to offer expert, objective and consistent information to our readers.”

The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland recommends more than 3,300 places to eat and sleep - including those restaurants and pubs awarded Michelin Stars for the quality of their food.
