Another great vintage: FCBL, Constance Hotels Mauritius - CB Food Solutions

Another great vintage: FCBL, Constance Hotels Mauritius

Once again, Chris attended the Festival Culinaire Bernard Loiseau as a guest of Constance Hotels. In advance, Chris had invited David Moore to join the prestigious jury, and for Mark Kempson of KitchenW8 to represent UK in the festival. Mark and his chef partner from The Seychelles performed admirably and came 3rd in the main culinary competition. The event was packed with luminaries from the food and drink world, and despite the competitive edge, many lifelong friendships were made. Amongst many highlights were a unique dinner created by our friend, Michael Caines, taking a rare break from Lympstone Manor to attend the festival. Also, Orjan Johannessen, Bocuse d’Or 2015 attended for a 3rd time, and like Michael, created a unique dinner along with Tommy Myllymaki, one of the best known chefs in Sweden. Its hard to imagine a more special or unique event in the culinary world, it has been an honour to be involved as a member of the jury, food journalist, advisor and now ambassador of the event for the UK.
