The International Academy of Gastronomy has announced the winners of its awards as it recognizes the world’s very best professionals in the gastronomy sector.

The most coveted prize, the Grand Prix de l’Art de la Cuisine, which has been “rewarding great contemporary cooking artists [for their] culinary mastery and creativity,” went to Ángel León, from Aponiente restaurant. Leon is a complete standout for his pioneering research and his commitment to creating one-of-a-kind dishes based on products from the sea. Over the years, four other Spaniards have received this distinction: Juan Mari Arzak, Ferran Adrià, Santi Santamaría and Joan Roca.

Several of other trade professionals from Spain took home awards as well. That includes the book Arzak, published by Planeta Gastro, which received the Prix au Littérature Gastronomique; and the website Gastroactitud, which took home the Prix Multimedia award for its efforts raising awareness about Spanish food.

Montserrat Abellá, who is in charge of desserts at Santceloni, received the Prix au Chef Pâtissier distinction, while José Félix Paniego, from El Portal de Echaurren, took home the Prix au Sommelier award.

The two other winners were Kiko Moya, from L’Escaleta, who got the Prix Chef de l’Avenir award. Previous winners include Albert Adrià, Elena Arzak and David Muñoz, and Pedro Monje, who helps runs Vía Veneto in Barcelona, was presented with the Grand Prix de l’Art de la Salle distinction.
