Michelin Starred Chef Marcel Ravin delights Mumbai with a specially curated Organic Food Festival hosted by @visitmonaco

Michelin starred chef Marcel Ravin, child of the Caribbean, delighted Mumbai with a specially curated organic food festival at The Oberoi Hotel recently. The bright eyed chef from Monaco was especially flown in from Monaco by @VisitMonaco. Ravin cooks faithfully and from the heart while combining the culinary style of his Caribbean origins with the treasures of the southern land and sea, so dear to the people of Monegasque.

He is one of the most talented chefs of his generation and took up the challenge of opening, as Executive Chef, at the superb restaurant Blue Bay, at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, facing the enigmatic seas and offering a terrace with panoramic views of the blue Mediterranean and sandy-bottomed lagoon. His tenacity, creativity and an innovative culinary style, were rewarded in 2015 with a new Star in the Michelin Guide. With his initiative to work with the start-up Terre de Monaco, cooking seasonal fruits and vegetables, which are freshly harvested from local sources, is more than a commitment for Chef Ravin; it is a priority.

The special culinary showcase, From Monaco with love” at Vetro, entailed Chef Marcel Ravin’s tasting menus, all sumptuously inspired by his travels of his native land and infused with fragrant flavours of his Signature dishes: Organic Egg with Truffle, Cassava and Maracuja juice (passion fruit in creole), and his Signature dessert: Chocolate and Passion Fruit Partition with Cocoa Bean & Passion Fruit Sauce. The four day Monaco Organic Food Festival, kickstarted, with exclusive gourmet tables for celebrity influencers, industry socialites, top-notch corporates, renowned media personalities, top travel-trade professionals  and senior delegation from Monaco Government Tourist Authority, followed by, Indian Spice Trail Tour for the committed star-awarded Chef.

Ms Corinne Kiabski, Press and Communication Manager-International Market from the Government Communication Department of Monaco, said, “The festival has been very productive for Monaco, as we met very interesting media and influencers and noticed that we share the same values for sustainability.

Michelin Starred Chef Marcel Ravin, added, “I have been waiting for so long to come to India, this is a dream that has come true for me. It was such an experience in the Oberoi kitchen to share our knowledge with the Indian Chefs. In fact, it was easy because we share the same passion. Cooking is all about love and sharing, when  you cook you put your soul in your recipes. I am very inspired and intend to create new dishes fusing the flavour of Indian spices I brought back from Mumbai. It will be called, De retour d’Inde meaning Coming back from India.

Rajeev Nangia, India Director, Monaco Government Tourist Bureau, expressed, “Food is an integral part of travel and we are delighted to highlight the cuisine curated by Chef Marcel Ravin at Vetro, The Oberoi. The entire activity was designed to bring culinary art of Monaco to India. We are sure that Indian high-end travellers, now have another very good reason to travel and celebrate in the Principality."

In Monaco, gastronomy, local and season are linked! From urban gardens to organic restaurants, through the reasoned choice of products and the fight against food waste, the environmental approach is deeply rooted in the principles of the Monegasque restaurants. With Green is the New Glam, Monaco aims to make the Principality carbon neutral by 2050.

A fairy tale by the sea, the luxurious Principality of Monaco is the second smallest country, located on the extremely picturesque French Riviera. With the exotic setting, world-class hospitality and our passion, Monaco has ideal venue and customization options to make your celebrations a grand success.
