In July 2022, Heritage Resorts organised Mauritius’ first Sustainable Gastronomy Week, with star chef Christian Têtedoie from Lyon joining the event as the guest of honour. The event will now take place annually. Sustainable gastronomy means promoting food that has been produced and supplied in alignment with environmentally friendly practices, favouring local and seasonal products. Ram Appadoo, chef at the Château de Bel Ombre, explains what is at stake.
Why is it important?
To feed tomorrow’s world!
To create a fair economy.
For our health.
To reduce our carbon footprint.
Favouring short supply chains (in particular, by limiting the number of intermediaries between the producer and the consumer), sourcing local and seasonal products, and ensuring proper waste management are practices that show greater respect for our planet.
