In the heart of the bustling Charter Yacht Show, the prestigious Concours de Chef and Tablescaping contests unfolded. The standards reached unprecedented heights, creating an atmosphere of culinary excellence that resonated throughout the yachting show. The theme for the competitions focused on global inspirations with an emphasis on sustainable products.

Every dish presented underwent rigorous scrutiny, not just for taste and presentation but for the innovative techniques and creativity employed by the participating chefs. The
panel of six judges, headed by Chef/Coordinator, Elizabeth Lee, composed of industry luminaries with discerning palates.

As the yachts cruise through international waters, the competition’s theme reflects a commitment to culinary diversity. From caviar-infused creations to molecular gastronomy marvels, every plate is a work of art designed to tantalize the taste buds of the judges, who also assessed the tablescaping designs.

The winners were crowned, between heavy rains and a crescendo of applause. The Concours de Chef again, solidified its reputation as a benchmark for culinary excellence in the yachting world.
