Culinary Extravaganza in Conrad Algarve for its second edition
For the second year in a row, the Conrad Algarve will be hosting the Culinary Extravaganza, deemed to be “the culinary event of the year.” Between the 4th and the 6th of November, the famous 5-star hotel in Quinta do Lago will receive 16 world-class chefs, creating some of the most exquisite gourmet pieces you can find.
The program includes the following schedule:
- November 4th: the Grand Opening Event ‘Culinary Heaven’;
- November 5th: ‘BBQ Brunch’ and a ‘Michelin Dining Experience’;
- November 6th: ‘Roof Garden Lunch’ and ‘Closing Dinner Party’.
Prices start at 95€. A mix of the best flavours and techniques, together with delicious surprises, is expected to leave all the guests in awe.
Heinz Beck: solid credentials
The operations will be coordinated by Heinz Beck, one of the world’s leading, three-star Michelin chefs, with an awesome career. He’s in charge of “La Pergola”, the only three-star restaurant in Rome, the “Aspleys – A Heinz Beck Restaurant in London”, which needed just five months to achieve a Michelin star, and the “Social by Heinz Beck” in the Waldorf Astoria Dubai.
Culinary Extravaganza: a new taste of Algarve
The Culinary Extravaganza and the very initiative of having Heinz Beck installing his Gusto restaurant is part of an intelligent strategy from Conrad Algarve.
In a sense, this is good not only for Conrad but also for the region as a whole. We have been talking here, especially in the Portuguese language articles, about the importance of having a diversified strategy to lure occasional tourists and potential residents (as well as effective residents, of course) to the interesting side of Algarve, as the region can be. Be it the Vilamoura Champions Tour, the big equestrian event, the Golf Masters, or the Algarve Classic Festival, for auto racing enthusiasts, there seems to be always happening something beyond the everyday sunshine, golfing and beach.
The Culinary Extravaganza seems to have everything it takes to get bigger and become a significant international event in the upcoming years, contributing heavily to make Algarve known abroad.
