Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts, Altis Hotels, Vila Vita Parc, Vila Joya, Casa da Calçada, Fortaleza do Guincho and The Yeatman will join hands this year in a tour promoting the outstanding cuisine of Portugal, with a total of 7 events .
The Stars Route 2013 starts on the 20th February and goes until November, from the North to the South of Portugal and passing through Madeira Island.
The Chefs Benoît Sinthon, Dieter Koschina, Hans Neuner, José Cordeiro, Ricardo Costa, Vincent Farges and Vítor Matos will host various events which promises to offer exclusive and exceptional culinary experiences .
Each event will count with the presence of invited international chefs. The common denominator for the Chefs is belonging to the elite circle of excellence recognized by the Michelin Guide.
Thus, at each event, the host Chef will receive another two, all with Michelin stars, to prepare as a team a tasting menu incorporating some of the distinguished dishes from the famous guide, while also seeking out the richness of flavors and products from each Region.
