The day began with a visit to the Bois Chéri Museum and Factory and lunch, which was hosted by Jacqueline Dalais.

Chefs experienced some local rum, learned about the spices from the area, as well as palm hearts, anthuriums and vanilla plantations.

Today was a gently warm up so everyone could get to know each other and settle into their luxury, beautiful surroundings. Tomorrow, the competition will truly get started as the participants will visit the Belle Mare Plage’s Blue Penny Cafe and draw lots to decide on the 6 teams. After this they will visit the Port Louis Market in preparation for testing their new recipes on Tuesday!
