It’s an opportunity on Mallorca to taste the cuisine of several Michelin-starred chefs – this year from Spain, Germany, and Italy – all in one place and on one night. The 2015 Safari Culinario at the St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort is the fifth of its kind and is a gastronomic treat that no foodie should miss.
We attended a previous Safari Culinario in 2013, and I wrote an article about it, published in Food & Wine journal. The event was the best we had been to since moving to the island, with a beautiful setting, great live music, and a party atmosphere. In brief, it’s an evening when you eat a dinner of various courses – each prepared by a different chef – in different locations within the 5-star hotel. The event begins with a generous buffet of appetizers on the terrace, dishes from each chef, then a buffet of more than 20 different desserts.
