From june 20th to 29th, the Azorean School of Tourism and Hospitality Training (EFTH) organizes the second edition of

the 10 Fest Azores, that will take place at Anfiteatro Restaurant. This festival aims to underline gastronomy’s bigger

importance for tourism in the Azores, highlighting the azorean products and flavors with a contemporary approach.

Once more, it’s a great pleasure for the EFTH School to gather, in the same place and in a short period of time, distinguished national and international chefs, sommeliers and barmen.

It’s an honor and a great privilege for the School and for the Azores to gather chefs as Paulo Morais & Anna LinsDalila & Renato CunhaAndré MagalhãesSusana FelicidadeRay McCue (USA), Nicolai Mentzler (Denmark), Andy de Brouwer e Nico Corbesier (Belgium). There will also be a special day dedicated to the Azores Islands, in which 7 local chefs and former students will join the 3 School Chefs to prepare, together, one of the dinners.

The opening and closing dinners of 10 Fest Azores 2013 will be prepared by Michelin star chefs. Namely David Faure, from Aphrodite Restaurant, in Nice, and Vitor Matos, a Portuguese chef from Casa da Calçada Hotel, Relais & Chateaux.

The EFTH has now become a reference in the education of a new generation, based on solid teaching methods

combining theory and practice at Anfiteatro Restaurant/Lounge, the school’s training facility. It is also distinguished by the strong effort to offer short term courses for continuing development of professionals, bringing to the Azores a unique dynamic, with thousands of hours in a broad range of areas for the whole industry taught by some of the best professionals nationwide. The School is also frequently invited to facilitate workshops, consultancy programs and gastronomic events all over the Azores Islands archipelago, assuming its regional role.

Nowadays the School is a strategic partner to promoting the Azores Islands through gastronomy, being part of different projects in the mainland Portugal and abroad, giving the Azores Islands the benefits of the school’s national and international partnerships established over the past number of years. The School aims to continue to lead a movement to bring a modern approach to the Azorean gastronomy, motivating companies, professionals and youth for innovation.
