In our on-going quest to source the best from across the globe to bring back for our guests, Head Sommelier Jerome Faure introduced the unique, handmade ceramics from Jars Céramistes to this year’s Culinary Festival Bernard Loiseau in Mauritius.
The idea was conceived during a conversation about the festival with leading winemaker Maxime Graillot over a glass of wine at Constance Le Prince Maurice earlier this year.
The pair discussed how the best dish deserved to be served on the very best plates and Graillot recommended the small, French artisan ceramics factory, Jars.
The ceramics included plates and tableware used at the Blue Penny Café and Deer Hunter restaurant on the first day of the competition, as well as for guests to present dishes following a private cooking class with Chef Patrick Bertron.
The beautiful simple design of the ceramics are based around the elements of nature, and were designed to create a poetic blend of beauty and utility.
Jerome, organiser of this year’s Culinary Festival, believes the stylish simplistic ceramics helped enhance the elegance of the dishes presented on them.
