Highest honour for SBM chef

Marcel Ravin, the Michelin-starred chef of SBM’s Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, has been promoted to the rank of Knight of the Legion of Honour (Overseas).

“I am very moved and touched by this decoration,” he said.

The National Order of the Legion of Honour is the institution that is responsible for awarding the highest honorary French decoration. Since its inception, it has been awarded to the military but also to civilians who have rendered eminent service to the French nation.

Since leaving Martinique to learn the art of cooking, Mr Ravin has taken up the challenge of a creative culinary style combining Caribbean origins with Mediterranean dishes. Chef Ravin has starred in the Michelin Guide since 2015.

He brings with him the memory of the dishes of “there”: spices, and produce and recipes imbued with a distinctive Caribbean flavour. Through this atypical and very successful journey, the chef has become an emblematic figure in his native Martinique, where he plays an educational role by inculcating his experiences and passing on his know-how to the young people with whom he shares his passion.
