Glam Media, the company behind Foodie.com, has announced that they’ve brought on board some of the world’s most well-respected restaurant critics to discern the best restaurants in the world, to be featured on the food site.

 "The current food criticism and recommendation model is fundamentally broken — the rise of un-curated online user reviews against the old traditional restaurant guides of anonymous critics has resulted in a loss in the value of professional food critics, especially in a social digital world of sophisticated foodies," said Samir Arora, Glam Media chairman and CEO. "Our goal is to build an ecosystem of curated and owned editorial content, bringing together the voices of influential content creators and critics with the large reach of over 12 million users a month in our Foodie vertical."

The lineup of critics really is quite something, bringing in the most knowledgeable voices the world over They include: Charles Champion (United Kingdom), Gael Greene (USA), Aun Ko (China), Kundo Koyama (Japan), Alexander Lobrano (France), Sam Ohta (Japan), Ruth Reichl (USA), Vir Sanghvi (India), Bruno Verjus (France), Patricia Wells (France) and Masuhiro Yamamoto (Japan).
