Seeing stars in Portugal

Only Michelin-starred chefs participate in Portugal’s annual International Gourmet Festival. Thirty-three will make mouths water January 12 to 22 next year when the food fest heats up Southern Portugal’s Vila Joya boutique resort on the pretty Algarve Coast, 250 kilometres or two and a half hours from Lisbon’s international airport. Right now, the festival roster includes master chefs from Canada, the US and Europe, each presenting his or her tasting menu with several wine pairings. It’s the only event of its kind in the world and what’s more, the same chef never appears at the fest twice. Tickets are a little pricey — they start at about $500 per person, which includes a pre-dinner cocktail, dinner menu, selected wine pairings and coffee — but the event really is a true gourmand’s dream come true. internationalgourmetfestival.com; vilajoya.com.
