The Route du Goût 2016


Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is involved in the 2nd edition of this major Organic Festival

A spotlight on organic

The latest instalment of the Route du Goût will take place on 12 to 16 October 2016. Founded by Paolo Sari, chef at the Monte-Carlo Beach and founding member of the association Bio Chef Global Spirit, the Organic Festival aims at raising widespread awareness about preserving the environment and the natural wealth of our region. An organic market on Quai Antoine 1er, a tennis competition for youngsters at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, an invention competition and a culinary regatta along the legendary Riva are just some of the events that will delight young and old alike for 5 days.


Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer and the region are getting involved in the event

The highlight of the event: Two Organic Gala Dinners.

For the “Gala de la Route du Goût” on 13 October, Chef Paolo Sari is inviting Jean-André Charial, two-starred Michelin Chef of l’Oustau de Baumanière restaurant, to take part in a session of organic haute cuisine for this dinner prepared by four hands. Students from the Lycée Hôtelier de Monaco will provide culinary support and service.

On 14 October, 10 children from 8 to 12 years of age will support 10 Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer in preparing the Gala dinner. From 19.30, the Chef/Child duos will present their creations on stalls at the Flavours Market, the “Marché des Saveurs”.


A humanitarian project

Although this initiative arose from ecological awareness, its main objective is humanitarian. The funds raised during the evening and culinary events are intended for a charity project supported by Bio Chef Global Spirit. In partnership with the OSO Foundation, the association is working to fund and build an organic hospitality school in Madagascar.

In addition, through the Moses.Bio® and Orto® projects (organic vegetable garden) the association will provide the technical and financial support needed to develop ecological practices and organic agriculture in the region.
