Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels is bringing top French Chef Cyril Lignac and his restaurant Ischia to La Brezza. The Italian Trattoria of the legendary Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury will be hosting the famous Chef and Pastry Chef from Aveyron in the south of France for an amazing 6-month collaboration. William Girard, Executive Chef of Royal Palm Beachcomber and Cyril Lignac are teaming up to bring their respective expertise to a place that is recognised for its tradition of excellence. A unique experience with two teams coming together as one.
“ We are very delighted with this unique collaboration with Chef Cyril Lignac. His innovation, audacity and immense talent will undoubtedly allow us to bring new gourmet experiences to our guests while maintaining the Mediterranean inspiration behind our restaurant, La Brezza.” Isabelle Bouvier, General Manager, Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury.
La Dolce Vita under the sun of Mauritius
Ischia Maurice pays tribute to the iconic island of the Gulf of Napoli, an opportunity for everyone to discover a cuisine that is universal, stimulates the senses and above all reflects the identity of its people. This exceptional collaboration will enable Chef Cyril Lignac to offer a contemporary interpretation of Italian cuisine, with a delicate Mauritian touch.
Cyril Lignac offers a reinterpretation of traditional Italian dishes such as Pizzette with cooked ham, mushrooms, wasabi and pecorino; Vitello Tonnato with capers and sundried tomatoes; Anolini al limone with sage butter and ricotta; and Piedmont hazelnut ice cream and gianduja sauce. The French Chef has also created some dishes infused with Mauritian flavour, such as: Linguine with lobster; Bourgeois cooked with olive oil and lemon, Victoria pineapple and red peppers; and a Sorbet with local lemon and grapefruit confit.
“Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is a timeless place that gives full meaning to sophistication and lifestyle indulgence, capturing the true elegance of hospitality. I am delighted to join this wonderful adventure! I want to pay tribute to the multicultural identity of the island by combining the French and Mauritian terroirs with the Italian influences of my restaurant in Paris, Ischia. I hope that this invitation to gourmandise will convey the pleasure it gave me to bring this project to life.” Cyril Lignac, Chef & Pastry Chef.
