The Culinary Festival Bernard Loiseau, held at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius, is a highlight of the international gastronomic calendar. Next year, the festival will celebrate its 9th year, taking place from 29 March to 6 April.
The festival pairs European Michelin-starred chefs with the best island cooks from across the Constance group in a week long competition.
The festival promotes an open sharing of ideas and culinary inspiration and techniques between the acclaimed chefs and their island counterparts.
Using only fresh local produce, sourced by the teams at the vibrant Mauritian market in Port Louis, each team must come up with an exciting, creative menu. This menu is then prepared by the island chefs on the final day and judged by a panel of leading culinary professionals.
The festival, a partnership between Constance Hotels & Resorts and the Relais Bernard Loiseau, was launched in 2006 to commemorate the chef Bernard Loiseau.
Guests at Belle Mare Plage and Le Prince Maurice during the festival can look forward to a week of sumptuous meals prepared by the visiting chefs, demonstrations and a celebratory awards dinner.
