With his no-nonsense, old-school approach to food, Fergus Henderson seems an unlikely candidate for a lifetime achievement award from the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, which celebrates a world of showy eateries
13th: The Fat Duck, Bray, UK
Heston Blumenthal described the World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards as being "a snapshot of the moment." We'd hoped The Fat Duck would reach the top 10, but with Heston pretty distracted this year, it's perhaps no surprise. Sadly he's dropped from fifth place in 2011, but 'lucky 13th' - in the world - is a great achievement.
