The organisation behind The World’s 50 Best Restaurants has released its first-ever e-cookbook called, Home Comforts: Simple Lockdown Recipes From The World’s Best Chefs And Bartenders. The exclusive cookbook features recipes for meals that the world’s most revered chefs are cooking for their families at home. This special release is available for a US$10/£8 minimum donation through the 50 Best Bid for Recovery donation site. 

William Drew, Director of Content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said, “We are thrilled to have some of the world’s leading chefs and bartenders come together and offer their favourite recipes for our first ever e-cookbook.”

“Chefs who have featured on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants lists are opening their kitchens and encouraging food lovers to recreate their best-loved dishes in the comfort of their own homes. We urge people to support us in raising as much money as possible for the global hospitality industry – and help give back to the restaurants and bars struggling around the world – with a minimum US$10 or £8 donation,” he continued.


The sales of the cookbook will raise funds to support the global hospitality community as part of the 50 Best for Recovery programme announced earlier this year in partnership with founding donor S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna. The cookbook contains 50 unique recipes from an equal balance of female and male chefs who have been featured on recent 50 Best lists, alongside 25 cocktail pairings from bartenders behind The World’s 50 Best Bars. 

The result is a collection of simple and delicious comfort food creations, from Tokyo to San Francisco, split into categories of vegetarian, fish and seafood, meat, and dessert. You’ll get to learn the secrets behind Alain Passard’s inspired veg-led cookery, Daniela Soto-Innes’ versatile mole, Manu Buffara’s Sunday family favourite and Vicky Lau’s brilliant.

Home Comforts has been created to give an insight into what the 50 Best chefs have been cooking during the lockdown, giving readers special access to the simple suppers they make at home, away from the polished plating in their restaurants. Anyone, anywhere in the world can donate, download a copy, and start cooking like a top chef, with ingredients easily sourced from supermarkets and local stores. The funds raised will go towards providing direct and tangible financial relief for restaurants and bars worldwide as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the 50 Best for Recovery programme.
