Organic festival this weekend in port

Organic festival this weekend in port

By Staff Writer - October 13, 2017

The Route of Goût is the annual organic foodie event celebrating popular gastronomy, biology, ecology, health, youth and sports for a charitable purpose over four days in October.

The free festival along Quai Albert Ier is organised by the Association Bio Chef Global Spirit under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert and chaired by Paolo Sari, the only starred chef who is certified organic in the world.

“Monaco – the symbol of wellbeing, respect for the environment, renewable energy, and biological diversity – is the perfect place to be 100 percent organic,” Mr Sari told Monaco Life. “It’s a corner between Italy and France, and the French-Italian agriculture and gastronomy share long histories. Also, we have a microclimate that allows lemon and cabbage, and avocado and mango to grow in the same soil.”

From Thursday, October 12, until Sunday, October 15, in additional to the organic farmers market, there will be many educational activities on the topic of renewable energy and protecting the planet, as well as cooking demonstrations. Parents and children are invited to become involved. Children can also take part in a tennis competition at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, and on Friday at the Monte Carlo Beach the Gala Dinner will be prepared by children with a little help from local chefs.

Saturday will have a marine flavour – dedicated to “craftsmen of the sea” – with a procession of 8 Riva boats accompanied by 8 starred chefs. The afternoon culinary competition is open to the public, but in the evening, the 8 chefs will prepare a memorable dinner consisting of 8 works of art, one dish by each chef. The first dinner ever made by 16 hands.

Money raised during the various events, from the sale of gadgets to private donations, will be donated to the reconstruction and revitalisation of the food, hospitality and educational establishments in the Italian regions hit hardest by the earthquake in 2016.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of Paolo Sari’s first book – The Bio Chef – will be for the purchase of professional equipment for the start-up of the organic hotel school in Ambavanankarana, Madagascar, and for the construction of a second building in 2018.
