BBM hosts Masterclass with Michelin-starred Chef Bruno Mernard
Leading resort supplier Bestbuy Maldives (BBM) has concluded another successful edition of their annual Masterclass workshop, aimed at helping chefs expand their knowledge in the culinary arts.
This year’s Masterclass was conducted on September 28, at Hulhule Island Hotel by renowned Michelin-starred Chef Bruno Mernard.
The event, which was attended by chefs from across the Maldives, provided a unique opportunity to observe and interact with Chef Mernard who is regarded as one of the best in the culinary industry with over 35 years of experience and three Michelin stars to his name.
Showcasing three exquisite dishes, Chef Mernard demonstrated preparation techniques and methodologies behind creating simple yet elegant dishes which can be perfectly reproduced for as many guests as needed.
This was followed by a discussion session where he shared tips and advice for participants to help further their skills in the field; one of his main takeaways being a few words of wisdom from his mentor: “Competitions are important, but more than being number one at a competition for one day, you need to be the very best every day for your customer.”
Attendees were presented with certificates to signify the invaluable knowledge they had gained.
A.V.S. Subrahmanyam, Chief Operating Officer at BBM, commented: “The audience took away a lot thanks to the engaging manner in which Chef Bruno conducted the session.”
Following this successful Masterclass, the hospitality industry is gearing up for the Hotel Asia Exhibition & International Culinary Challenge 2019, the biggest event of its kind in the Maldives.
Organised by Maldives Exhibition and Conference Service (MECS), with BBM serving as the main sponsor, it is due to take place from October 6-9 at the main convention centre of Dharubaaruge in capital Male.
