The 3rd Premier Gastronomy Festival was organized with great success for the third consecutive year from Premier Luxury Mountain Resort in Bansko.
From 31 October until 30 November 2014, the guests had the chance to taste unique fusion flavours from every corner of the world – Japan, France, Mexico, Germany, Peru, Netherlands, Crete, Sicily and Mount Athos. The culinary creations by the most representative chefs travelled us in a wonderful gastronomical journey.
At the opening party everyone enjoyed the molecular fingerfood creations & unique cocktails by Orexis Team and the wonderful voice of Mey. The guest chefs prepared unforgettable degustation dinners.
Michalis Ntounetas, Chronis Damalas, Elder Epifanios, Robin Villarreal, Ivenil Ivanov, Dimitris Katrivesis, Procopio Gaetano, George Stylianoudakis and Roeland Klein offered us outstanding culinary creations, which were literally lifted off by the exquisite wines of Bibendum, Domaine Boyar, Mediterra and Mylopotamos winery.
Bulgaria’s top sommeliers - Michael Markovski, Slavi Raychev, Dimitar Nikolv and Kristina Ivanova – initiated us in the secrets of wine and gave us the opportunity to taste amazing wines, at the wine degustations that were organized.
For the first time in Bulgaria, in partnership with Gastronomy Essentials, there were organized training seminars for professionals by the highly acclaimed school Le Cordon Bleu and the internationally famous and official demonstrator of Valrhona chocolate, pastry chef Dimitris Chronopoulos. Reginald Ioos (Le Cordon Bleu London) presented recipes, techniques and valuable tips about “Warm & cold buffet in luxury and resort hotels”, while Dimitris Chronopoulos shared the secrets of chocolate in a hands-on professional workshop.
Furthermore, in cooperation with the Bulgarian Ministry of Education, Premier Luxury Mountain Resort offered the opportunity to students of both public and private cookery/pastry schools to attend those seminars for free, proving its commitment to contribute to the development of the country’s tourism industry.
