Michelin unveiled the latest edition of its Michelin Guides for fine Cantonese food in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, on Monday.

It was the first time that the renowned Michelin Guides focused on a regional cuisine in its worldwide release. Gwendal Poullennec, international director of Michelin Guides, said: "The Michelin Guide is now acclaiming, internationally, Cantonese gastronomy, which enjoys a worldwide reputation and is appreciated both in Asia, Europe, North America and in the Pacific."

This innovative selection, which goes beyond the territorial boundaries to focus on a particular gastronomy, lists some 291 establishments, of which 78 are starred restaurants, 62 are Bib Gourmand restaurants and 151 are restaurants awarded a Michelin Plate.

"These establishments reflect the complexity and the richness of Cantonese cuisine and offer a varied selection adapted to all desires and all budgets," said Poullennec. These different addresses are located in 15 countries from China to the United States through Italy.

Asia has the largest number of starred Cantonese restaurants with 69 establishments, while Europe has eight and the US one.The edition was jointly released with the GAC Motor, a subsidiary of the GAC Group, a leading automobile manufacturer based in Guangzhou.
