Innovative Algarve chef wins regional competition

Executive Chef Louis Anjos from the Suites Alba Resort & Spa in Praia de Albandeira, near Carvoeiro, is regional winner of the Chef of the Year Contest 2012, promoted by Edições do Gosto.

Competing with five other chefs in the ‘South and Islands’ stage of the contest, Louis Anjos created three dishes – a starter, main course and dessert – which earned him the top regional prize for quality, creativity, originality and innovative techniques.

Chef Louis Anjos, who likes to combine traditional Portuguese cuisine with other flavours of the world, said: “The Edições do Gosto Chef of the Year Contest is one of the most prestigious in the country and I feel privileged to have been picked from such culinary talent.”

Now in its 23rd year, the prestigious national competition will culminate on November 28 and 29 when the finalists will be competing for the Chef of the Year 2012 title in Lisbon.
