The gala will provide guests with an unforgettable dining experience, combining cuisine by chefs from Michelin starred restaurants and wines that have been rated highly by the Robert Parker team. “The United States is home to some of the best restaurants in the world, and the MICHELIN Guide’s aim is to help travelers as well as locals discover and experience them,” said Michael Ellis, international director of the MICHELIN Guide. “This event will be a great opportunity to recognize the talents of these great chefs, as well as to celebrate the MICHELIN guide New York City 2018.”In addition, this very special event will also host the Robert Parker Wine Advocate Extraordinary Winery Awards. This new series of winery awards will highlight the best wineries in the country.

To be eligible, that region must have at least one winery producing at least one “extraordinary” wine (rated 96-100) within the consideration period. Representatives from nominated wineries will be in attendance.“Each year our review team travels the wine world seeking out greatness,” commented Robert Parker Wine Advocate Editor-in-Chief, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, “The Extraordinary Winery Awards will bring to the attention of our subscribers those wineries that sit qualitatively above all others within their regions.” More information about the gala dinner are available on the website: MichelinGuideGala.comAbout the MICHELIN GuideThanks to the rigorous MICHELIN Guide selection process that is applied independently and consistently around 28 countries, the MICHELIN Guide has become an international benchmark in fine dining. The selections of all restaurants in the guide are made by Michelin’s famously anonymous inspectors who dine in the areas regularly. These local inspectors are trained to scrupulously apply the same time-tested methods used by Michelin inspectors for many decades throughout the world. This ensures a uniform, international standard of excellence. As a further guarantee of complete objectivity, Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full, and only the quality of the cuisine is evaluated. To fully assess the quality of a restaurant, the inspectors apply five criteria defined by Michelin: product quality, preparation and flavors, the chef’s personality as revealed through his or her cuisine, value for money, and consistency over time and across the entire menu. These objective criteria are respected by all MICHELIN Guide inspectors, whether in Japan, the United States, China or Europe. They guarantee a consistent selection so that a star restaurant has the same value regardless of whether it is located in Paris, New York or Tokyo.About Robert Parker Wine AdvocateFor more than 39 years, The Wine Advocate, and later RobertParker.com, have been the global leader and independent consumer’s guide to fine wine.

Other Sports India Women’s Junior Hockey Team Beat New Zealand, Start Australia Tour On A High

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Canberra: The Indian junior women’s hockey team started its campaign at the Three-Nation tournament on a positive note, beating New Zealand 2-0 in Canberra on Wednesday. Striker Lalrindiki (15th minute) and midfielder Prabhleen Kaur (60th) were the two goal scorers for the winners. India started the match with an aggressive brand of hockey, pinning down New Zealand, who had defeated hosts Australia 3-1 in their first match on Tuesday. India’s dominance in the opening quarter saw them win an early penalty corner in the third minute, but they failed to utilise the chance. A defensive lapse from New Zealand then handed India a golden opportunity at the stroke of the quarter break and Lalrindiki found herself with enough space in front of the goal to slot the ball home.New Zealand had a chance to equalise early in the second quarter from a penalty corner, but Indian goalkeeper Bichu Devi Kharibam made a good save to keep her side ahead. The two teams battled for possession in the middle of the park but neither could create any clear chances, meaning India retained their one-goal advantage at the half-time break.The third quarter was filled with some exciting chances for both sides. First, it was the Indian team who were awarded two penalty corners at the start of the period. However, a shot off target and a brilliant save by New Zealand goalkeeper Kelly Carline meant that India could not extend their lead. New Zealand also won a penalty corner at the end of the third quarter, but India’s defensive line stood firm to maintain their lead going into the fourth and final quarter.Also Read | Rani Rampal Cherishes Goal Which Sealed India Women’s Hockey Team’s Tokyo 2020 QualificationThe fourth quarter saw a similar story as New Zealand desperately searched for the equaliser, while India were focused on extending their lead. Some close moments in the last 15 minutes saw India defend well against one more penalty corner in the 48th minute. With 30 seconds remaining on the clock, India were awarded yet another penalty corner and this time Prabhleen made no mistake to slot the ball home to secure the win for her side. India will play hosts Australia in their second match on Thursday.last_img read more
