Members of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and their guests met for a friendly dinner in the cosy surroundings of the renovated farm that is now Restaurante Monte da Eira in Clareanes, Loulé.

The group consisted of eight different nationalities from three continents. Blazing wood fires, a welcoming drink prepared by the owner Pedro and meeting friends, old and new, set this first event of 2018 off on the right note.

The menu, based on flavoursome traditional Portuguese cuisine, was prepared by Pedro’s son and his “kitchen brigade”.

A tasty soup for a starter was followed by grouper, marinated Iberian pork shoulder, Portuguese cheeses and finally a delicious carob mousse. Portuguese wines complemented the traditional food.

Dr Jean Ferran, Bailli Provincial of Bailliage du Sud du Tage, gave a summary of some of the events planned for this year.

The owner and his staff were thanked for their hard work, which together with the friendly family atmosphere combined to make the evening a memorable one.

The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the oldest gastronomic association in the world, founded in France in 1248 in the reign of King St. Louis as the “Royal Guild of Goose Roasters”. This global society, which has over 25,000 members in 75 countries, brings together both professional members and those who appreciate wine, cuisine and fine dining.

It also supports and promotes the future of young cooks and sommeliers through the Chaîne Foundation. The Bailliage of Portugal supports a cookery school in Évora for young people. English and Portuguese are spoken at events held in the Algarve.
