Joining him is a “Dream Team” comprising seven ambassadors of the best culinary savoir-faire. Every evening during the festival they will be cooking at some of the best restaurants on the island.
There is no doubt that all these talented chefs on the island at the same time will set off fireworks, with culinary creations that are every bit as beautifully conceived as they are bursting with an innovative use of flavors… all for the pleasure of the most discerning
epicures. Our desire is that these moments of sharing and conviviality reflect the image of excellence and the outstanding lifestyle of Saint Barthélemy.
Once again, the cast of participating chefs raises the benchmark for this event, featuring legendary figures in the world of French gastronomy. “The Saint Barth Gourmet Festival is one of the best culinary festivals, bringing together chefs and guests to impart notions that are important to me, such as sharing, cultural exchange, and transmission. I am honored that the Tourism Committee has invited me as the guest of honor for the 6th edition of the Festival. During that week, I will put my heart into showcasing my seafood and plant-based cuisine, working with chef Nicolas Tissier.”
