Mexican chef Elena Reygadas has been named the best female chef in the world by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants organization. Reygadas is the chef-owner of Rosetta, a restaurant in Mexico City that serves classic Mexican dishes with a modern twist. The announcement was made on April 18, 2023, and Reygadas is the first to be awarded as part of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 class.

Reygadas was previously named the best female chef in Latin America in 2014, and now, almost a decade later, she has received worldwide recognition for her contributions to the culinary world. She expressed her gratitude for the award, saying, “Cooking is a communal practice. And so, for me, this award belongs to my entire team, as well as to all the women in the kitchen who have preserved our culinary legacy for generations.”

Rosetta, which opened in 2010, is known for its handmade pastas and reimagined Mexican dishes. Reygadas also owns Lardo and Café Nin, and in 2019, she released her first cookbook, showcasing Mexican ingredients and the traditions that shape them.

William Drew, the director of content for the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, praised Reygadas for her promotion of traditional dishes and indigenous biodiversity, saying, “Reygadas is promoting the future of Mexican gastronomy, and we’re proud to support her mission with this prestigious award.”
The full ranking of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 will be announced at a ceremony in Valencia, Spain, on June 20. However, it is clear that Reygadas is the crème de la crème of chefs this year.
