Pía León will collect her award on October 30 in Bogotá, Colombia, at the ceremony of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America.

On Wednesday, The World’s 50 Best organization elected Pía León as the best female chef in the world in 2021.

The list maintains this category despite criticism from those who believe that there should be no distinction between women and men.

León is the first Peruvian to achieve this distinction and will receive the award at the gala that The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will host in Antwerp (Belgium) on October 5.

“I am happy, after so much work, it is the perfect moment, the perfect platform to show that, although it can be difficult at times, if you have the will and know what you want, things happen in their own time and at the right time “said the Lima chef in a 50 Best statement.
