This year's list is out and while we didn't make the cut, many of our friends and fellow foodies did. So in best Oscar also-ran fashion, we're putting on our 'no, honestly we're delighted for you' faces.

Here's who the Standard picked as this year's Tastemakers.

  • Andre Balazs
  • Jamie Oliver
  • Christopher Corbin/Jeremy King
  • Russell Norman
  • Karam Sethi, Jyotin Sethi
