Gastronomic Weekend at Casa Velha do Palheiro25 and 26 October 2013

Casa Velha do Palheiro will be hosting its Gastronomic weekend on the 25th and 26th of October.
The guest chef this year will be Vítor Matos who is the Executive chef at the Casa da Calçada situated in the Douro Valley.

Vítor Matos trained in Switzerland before returning to his homeland in 1995.  He has since worked in many of Portugal’s top restaurants before becoming executive chef in one of Portugal’s most iconic restaurants – the Relais and Chateaux ‘Casa da Calçada’ which has held a Michelin star since 2010.
Chef Vítor describes his style of cuisine as “a set of influences and memories, with special attention given to the quality of the products (he always tries to incorporate regional products), the sensory experience based on the five senses, and finally the techniques and technology to create evolutionary, cultural and modern cuisine.”
Joining him will be the head chefs at Casa Velha do Palheiro – Madeira born Chef Francisco Quintal and French Chef Eric Weidmann – who will be using their vast experience of Casa Velha haute cuisine whilst showcasing all the gastronomic delights the region has to offer. Especially chosen Portuguese and Madeira wines from the Blandy Wine vaults will complement this Autumnal menu.
Visitors to Madeira and Casa Velha do Palheiro are invited to make reservations for dinner at their earliest convenience to avoid disappointment.

Price will be €75 euros per person including all wines.
