What's new

While we've been traveling, Philippe Joannes started his new job as Director of Culinary events at SBM (see 13 Sep 2018 newsletter). He's responsible for the centralised bakery and patisserie, where SBM will be making its own bread and pastries. In addition, the Salle des Etoiles, Coya, Buddha Bar and Thermes Marins restaurants come under his control.

British national Victoria Chaki has been named DG of Columbus Hotel. She was raised and schooled in Monaco, studied hospitality management at Glion in Switzerland, and has worked at The Savoy in London, Royal Manceau in Paris, and The Negresco in Nice. In 2014 she joined the Columbus and worked with Bastien Anouil, whom she now succeeds.

And finally, from today until Saturday there's a pop-up food festival and restaurant at Monark club in Port Hercule. It features chefs from Monaco, France, Spain and Russia and is serving lunches and dinners, as well as organizing workshops and tastings. The event is an extension of the Saisons de la Gastronomie (SGR), founded by Natalia Marzoeva, and promotes Russian produce in particular.
