Algarve Chefs Week: From 26 April to 3 May do not miss this luxury culinary week in the Algarve.

Ten Chefs, Ten Restaurants, Ten Hotels, 1 Price

The annual Algarve Chefs Week culinary festival will return for a mouth-watering fifth edition from 26 April – 3 May 2015. 

Dubbed “Algarve Chefs Week 5.0”, this year’s event brings together 10 top Chefs from the Algarve’s finest hotels to create one-off celebratory menus inspired by five of the region’s most characteristic products: Flor de Sal, dried figs, carob, fava beans and oranges.

The week-long gastronomic event sees each of the 10 participating chefs create their own special menus, pairing unique flavours with regional wines in a celebration of the Algarve’s most characteristic products. 

Following the official launch of Algarve Chefs Week at the Mercado de Loulé on 25 April, this year’s special menus will be available for dinner in the restaurants of the participating hotels from 26 April – 3 May. Prices start from €30 per person excluding drinks, and once again €1 from each meal will be donated to the homeless charity CASA.

For the first time, this year’s Algarve Chefs Week will be preceded by a series of gastronomic workshops, hosted by the 10 participating chefs. From 3pm on the afternoons of 4, 11 and 18 April, visitors to the Mercado de Loulé can learn how to make a variety of dishes based on the best Algarvean ingredients and flavours. Algarve Chefs Week 5.0 will also be marked by the publication of a special cookbook including some of the best dishes created for the event over the past five years.
