Ode to 6 Chefs on My Global Favorites List

Many people have asked me why I don’t do negative reviews on my website- AsianFusion. Simple- I only put up reviews of restaurants that make it to my global favorites list.

When I started my company, I made the decision that I was not in this to create negativity or to bring down other people. Running any business- especially a restaurant, is a tough, tough endeavor. Yes, there are many terribleĀ restaurants with owners who have no business being in the business, but it is not my battle or mission in life to shut them down.

I choose to focus on the wonderful chefs in the world who create wonderful meals that make me and so many others smile. At the end of the day, I don’t care if you’re Michael Bauer or Sam Sifton- food critiques are simply one man’s opinion and should not have the power to bring down a business that an entire team of hard working people have put their souls, lifetime savings and blood into.

So here- an ode to 6 out of my list of best chefs around the world- 6 who inspire smiles, laughter, giddiness and all around happy moments through their culinary talent. Thank you Chefs for making me fall in love through your food.
