Rajeshwar Rugoobur earns his place for the Bocuse d’Or in Italy by winning the competition: Café Gourmand by Nespresso

Belle Mare, Wednesday 28 MarchHe was ecstatic at the awards ceremony… who wouldn’t be after winning the prestigious Café Gourmand competition by Nespresso. Following his win, Rajeshwar Rugoobur was offered a spot at the famous Bocuse d’Or which will take place later this year in Turin, Italy, in June. The huge smile on the winner’s face, however, made no mention of the very close battle between the four contestants, all commis chefs at Constance hotels’ group as well as the experts in the art of exquisitely sublimating a cup of coffee.

Nespresso, via the competition, has contributed to the Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival since 2011, one of the most important gastronomic events in the Indian Ocean. The after-meal cup of coffee ritual is now an undeniable aspect of fine cuisine, and knowing how to prepare a caffeinated beverage properly is today considered as an art. To win over the judges, our competitors had to challenge each other with ingenuity, creativity, know-how and product knowledge. However, without underestimating the remaining criteria: taste, general appearance, presentation and combination of flavours for each cup presented to the jury.

Participants were fortunate to have access to some very high quality products, which allowed them to deliver quality performances. They worked with products such as: the Espresso Forte collection, which came straight from the forests and mountains of South America. This is how Rajeshwar Rugoobur of Constance Prince Maurice stood out from the crowd. In addition to his participation in the Bocuse d’Or, he will be privileged to have his creation incorporated into the Constance hotels menu.
