Sharpen your knives, it's Chef Competition time!

Bluewater is hosting the 7th annual chef competition with Gourmet Deliveries on Friday 31st March 2017. This year promises to be another nail biting cook-off with the yachting industry's most competent chefs battling it out.
Taking place at Secrets de Cuisine, Antibes' best culinary training school, we are excited to host another day watching 12 professionals create a delicious dish from a bag of surprise ingredients.

12 yacht chefs will go head to head in the morning and be given 30 minutes to create delicious dishes to be rated by our star panel. The winners will then go through to each round until the final at 4.30pm. During this last round, Prosecco and canapés will be served courtesy of Gourmet Deliveries.
We have some amazing prizes up for grabs and these will be handed out from 5.30pm following the final, with the last shuttles taking you back to Antibes between 6pm and 7pm.

Timings and Transport

The event will start at 9am and bluewater is providing complimentary shuttles running all day from the roundabout by the bluewater crew and training office at the end of boulevard d’Aguillon.

The 8 seater buses will run to/from the Secrets de Cuisine culinary school, 1630 Chemin des Combes, Antibes, 06600

Beauty Corner

Throughout this exciting day, we will also have Natalie Boddy from Harmony Rock Therapy offering complimentary massages, and with her diplomas in rock massage and teacher training, she will have you relaxed and ready to get back to watching the intense cook-offs.
