A new prize is to be awarded to the country that has the most Epicurean public policies and seems to have the most content and happy population.
This prize is initiated and funded by the well-known philanthropist, Marthe and Roberto Hanrotti, and will be presented to the President of the designated country at a lunch, cooked by chef celebrity Jamie Oliver (or a graduate from the Prue Leith School of Cookery, whoever has the most elaborate menu) at the romantic five star Hotel Bellevue Syrene which is atop a cliff in Sorrento, Italy, overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The ceremony will last 4 hours and anyone leaving sober will be struck off the register of top Epicureans.
Readers are invited to nominate countries they feel to be possible candidates, and to explain why they are nominating them.
Alternatively, you can suggest a list of the countries that haven’t a hope of winning the Epicurean prize, and why.
