Algarve Chefs Week 2013

This festival of flavours aims to promote the uniqueness and richness of Algarve gastronomy

Love food? You’ll love this…..eight top chefs, eight top resorts, one price….

Algarve Chefs Week is back, once again offering an opportunity to enjoy world class food created by world class chefs, at leading Algarve restaurants.

The idea is elegantly simple - eight chefs from eight top resorts create eight unique tasting menus, available only during the Algarve Chefs week from 11th to 18th May 2013. This festival of flavours aims to promote the uniqueness and richness of Algarve gastronomy, with particular attention to the glorious seafood readily available off the coast. Simple too is the pricing – just €30 per person for each unique tasting menu (drinks not included).

Algarve Chefs Week 2013

Among the participating restaurants (see the full list below), special mention for the Louro Restaurant at the Conrad Algarve. Marking the Conrad’s first participation in the Algarve Chef’s Week, Chef Cristiano de Martin will create a modern Portuguese tasting menu, to be served at the lovely Louro Restaurant. With an impressive curriculum spanning several continents, Chef Cristiano brings all his knowledge, passion and expertise to produce a stunning menu that is a celebration of local, fresh, Algarve ingredients.

To kick-start Algarve Chefs Week, ont Thursday 9th May the chefs will welcome arriving passengers at Faro airport with tasting teasers to whet their appetite for the coming week.
