Chefs have become stars, pastry chefs have the status of fashion icons, sommeliers travel to festivals around the world. But what about service and the Maitre’D?
This week, Constance Hotels launched the first edition of the service and ‘arts de la table’ competition, setting the pace and the first stone of what will become a major event in years to come.
It’s a contest where passion, love for the job and refinement are key.
The 3 candidates had to impress – and they did - a very high profile jury:
- Dominique Loiseau, President of Bernard Loiseau SA and Vice President of Relais & Châteaux
- Enrico Bernardo, best sommelier of the World 2004
- Denis Reichrath, CEO of Safran (a company specialized in top end supplies and material for restaurants
- Marc Marivel, group HR director of CHE and former general manager of the hotel school of Mauritius
More to come when we find out who won later in the week…
