Algarve Chefs Week begins on Monday

A record 14 restaurants are taking part in the Algarve Chefs Week between Monday, May 29 and Sunday, June 4.

This year, chefs are challenged to create menus inspired by traditional Algarve canned delicacies and ‘petiscos’ (tapas).

Each of the chefs’ restaurants – all located in top-class hotels – will be open for dinner, with menus costing €30.

As in previous events, €1 of the price of each meal is donated to Faro’s CASA charity for people in need throughout the region.

There will also be a “launch event” at Loulé’s municipal market on Saturday (May 27). For €10, visitors can enjoy four tapas, a “feijoada” (traditional stew) and two desserts, meet each of the 14 chefs and even enter a raffle for a free dinner at one of the hotels.

The launch event starts at 7.30pm.
