Our Chef Raherivel Claude Wing Sheng has been working at Constance Tsarabanjina since 1995.
In 2008 he had a fantastic opportunity to work alongside the Chefs at Constance Belle Mare Plage and Constance Prince Maurice.
His cuisine is a fusion between Malagasy cuisine and European cuisine with a variety of fresh local products such as fish and love to create dishes like sashimi, tuna carpaccio and raw fresh Malagasy vegetables. A touch of local spices but nothing that can hide the taste of his creation.
For Chef Claude, it is really important to use local products for the freshness of his culinary delights.
