First tasting session at Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival

Tuesday and the Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival stepped up a gear! Our teams of chefs were tasked with developing dishes in keeping with the Constance Hotels Experience’s spirit:

Reinvent a delicate cuisine, where the culinary traditions of the Indian Ocean islands simmer and blend with flavours from Asia, Africa and Europe

The European chefs aim to pass knowledge and experience to the talented Mauritian cooks in a culinary exchange that will develop original recipes while keeping a Mauritian focus.

The first trial on Tuesday involved the preparation and testing of the new recipes created by the teams.

The dishes were anonymously presented to our team of judges who tested them.

This hard day’s trial was topped off with a cocktail evening attended by sponsors, organisers and chefs alike.
