This Auction Give You the Chance to Travel and Eat with the World’s Best Chefs

All funds raised will provide financial relief for restaurants and bars worldwide.

Jun 19, 2020

If we were creating the itinerary for a dream trip in Singapore, it would very likely include meals at Burnt Ends and Odette, a hawker stall snacking tour, and copious amounts of Martinis at Atlas. While we’re dreaming, why not make top chef Julien Royer our personal tour guide and book stays at two of the city’s most iconic hotels, Capella Singapore and Marina Bay Sands?

Thanks to World’s 50 Best, this trip isn’t too good to be true. They’ve put together this itinerary plus more than 100 other once-in-a-lifetime culinary experiences for their Bid for Recovery online auction, an event part of their wider 50 Best for Recovery campaign to raise funds to provide relief for the culinary industry as it emerges from the COVID-19 shutdown. Independent restaurants and bars worldwide can apply for direct grants, and donations will also be made to non-profits that support the food industry while also feeding the hungry.

From July 3rd through 12th, food lovers can bid for the “Discover Singapore: Cuisine, Cocktails and Culture” experience, and other bucket-list-worthy opportunities donated by the world’s best chefs. Bid your way to a day with Mauro Colagreco, dining at his reigning No. 1 restaurant, Mirazur, and meeting his producers in Menton, France. Or snag an adventure of fishing and feasting in Tokyo with the Florilège team. Other lots up for grabs include rare bottles of spirits, artworks by chefs, private cooking classes, exclusive tastings, and more. 

Get the full list of offerings from June 29 at, ahead of the auction’s official opening five days later. For a sneak peek of some of the highlights visit their site here.
