With the sun and the sea providing a sparkling backdrop, Vila Joya’s Sea beach restaurant was the relaxing venue for a friendly lunch on Saturday, September 8 for members of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and their guests. The exclusivity of this beautiful venue is not only dictated by its innovative cuisine but also by its size allowing only a limited number of guests to be pampered at any one time.

Everyone was greeted with a welcome drink of sparkling sangria and given ample opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Algarve coast before going inside for lunch.

The brief for the menu was that it should reflect the Chef’s judgement of the ingredients of the day. All present were treated not only to the exquisitely balanced combination of taste as they made their way through the dishes, which included nigiri, tuna tataki, chilled melon soup followed by wakame salad and entrecote, but, at the same time, they were entertained by being able to watch the kitchen brigade at work creating each plate.

As a grand finale, the dessert consisted of a real-looking crafted pebble filled with chocolate and a tiny edible flip-flop echoing the surroundings of the sandy pebble beach.

This event, as every other meeting of the Chaîne, generated funds for the charities worldwide supported by the Chaîne Foundation including the Gastronomy School here in Portugal.
