The day started at 11am, the sun was shining, our 12 chefs were gathered together awaiting instructions, and the kitchen area was being checked by the Yacht Club’s very own gastronomic chef, Christian Plumail.
The first 3 chefs were welcomed and given 30 minutes to prepare a delicious plate, from a secret bag of ingredients
provided by our lovely provisioner's, Helen and Gabi of Gourmet Deliveries.
At the end of the 30 minutes, the jury deliberated whilst the next 3 chefs prepared themselves for the same task.
By 3.30pm all 12 chefs had competed and were awaiting the arrival of H.S.H Prince Albert II to join before the announcement was made of which 3 chefs were going through to the final.
Guests enjoyed an open bar provided by bluewater whilst chatting with the chefs, and for those who weren't able to join us in person we had Mark Barrowman
of Lifestyle Events with us, filming the entire event and creating a live feed to our facebook page.
