Algarve Chefs Week is back!

8 chefs, 8 restaurants, 8 menus....1 price for 1 week only

Now in it’s 4th edition, the Algarve Chefs Week is a delicious concept. 8 chefs at 8 restaurants in 8 hotels at 1 price for one week only – 23rd to 30th May. This is a fabulous opportunity to enjoy specially crafted menus by some of the Algarve’s leading chefs at a very enticing price.

This year, the menus, created exclusively for Algarve Chefs Week, play to the strengths of local Algarve flavours and traditions with plenty of seafood, herbs, local fruit and vegetables. The menus are designed to be a voyage of dicovery of the rustic deliciousness that the Algarve can offer, featuring the flavours of quail, suckling pig, carob, medronho, figs, honey scented with rosemary and so much more......The extra ingredient in each dish is the flair and skill of each chef.

In this it’s 4th year, Algarve Chefs Week features once again the fabulously luxurious Conrad Algarve resort, represented by Chef Andrew McGie and Louro Restaurant. Best known perhaps for its great Sunday Brunch, Louro Restaurant offers great inside and outside dining. The Sheraton Algarve resort set amid acres of gentle hills, umbrella pines and ochre cliffs, is also a participant in Algarve Chefs Week. Restaurante O Pescador, which specializes in seafood, will offer some enticing and original dishes created by Chef Osvalde Silva. And at Restaurante Cilantro at the Hilton Vilamoura, Chef André Simões has created a menu of Mediterranean and Algarvian flavours. Before or after a meal at Cilantro we highly recommend a cocktail at the Rubi Bar. Throw away your pre-conceived ideas of tired, old cocktails and enjoy inventive, delicious cocktails, with or without alcohol, presented with a large measure of theatrical magic.

The 2014 edition of Algarve Chefs Week will be launched in the arrivals hall at Faro airport. Lucky passengers arriving at Faro between 3 and 7pm on the 22nd May will be treated to tasty treats, tapas and desserts, accompanied by delicious juices and wines. Not a bad way to start a visit to the Algarve.
