Ljubomir is Chef of the Year 2020
Ljubomir Stanisic won the “Chef of the Year 2020” award, given by Revista de Vinhos, on February 4, at the annual “Best of the Year” ceremony.
“In a particularly difficult and turbulent year in the restaurant business, Ljubomir Stanisic was considered “Chef of the Year”, for having been one of the most heard voices in the sector and for having also achieved a Michelin star for Restaurant 100 Maneiras, in Bairro Alto, Lisbon”, justifies the organization of the awards that, this year, were announced online, given the pandemic.
On social media, Ljubomir thanked the distinction, saying that it is “a privilege and an honor, especially now, after these 365 days that have no possible subtitle. But it is also a lesson: learning that not everything is just bitter or just sweet, not everything is only black and white, not everything can be bad and nothing bad can last forever. Hope is the word that sums up what I feel now. And that alone is so much…! Thank you very much!”
It should be remembered that, in addition to this award, 2020 also brought the first Michelin star to Restaurant 100 Maneiras and to the chef.
The “Chef of the Year 2020” award is the third award given to Ljubomir Stanisic by Revista de Vinhos: in 2017, he won the title “Personality of the Year in Gastronomy” and, in 2015, the “David Lopes Ramos Award”.
