This weekend, we’re delighted to welcome the talented young French pastry chef Yann Menguy to Constance Belle Mare Plage for an exceptional culinary event.
‘Yann is like dynamite, a free electron who creates stylish pastries with elegance and humility,’ says his mentor, world champion of pastry Christophe Michalak.
The chef – who was runner-up on the French reality TV Show Qui Sera le Prochain Grand Pèótissier (Who will be the next big pastry chef) – will be creating magic in the Constance kitchen from 2–5 August, which includes an ‘Around the Chocolate’ gala dinner paired with a global selection of wines at La Spiaggia restaurant on Saturday 2 August. On the menu will be some very special desserts and pastries, so don’t forget to mark the date.
Gala dinner guests can expect a rich and exciting dining experience, with a sea scallop starter accompanied by a 2008 Marcalberto Millesimo from Piedmont, Italy, fish or beef fillet to follow with a 2011 New Zealand Chardonnay or 2011 South African Syrah Carignan respectively, plus a 1980 vintage from the French region of Languedoc-Roussillon to accompany the Cocoa Crystalline dessert.
