Daniel Lehmann said, “At JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs, we are always striving to create unforgettable culinary experiences that transcend borders and unite cultures through the art of food. Having Bulgaria in the JRE family enlarges our culinary landscape.”

The festivities will extend to March 7th at the Bacchus Restaurant of the Year 2024 Awards Ceremony in Sofia, where JRE-Jeunes Restaurants will curate the menu for the Gala Evening, paying tribute to 5 JRE Lady Chefs from 5 different countries.

JRE-Chefs Floriana Ružić from San Rocco restaurant (Croatia), Annett Teich from BK (France), Virginia Caravita from Dimora Ulmo (Italy), Sabina Repovz from Gostilna Repovž (Slovenia), and Teresa Gutiérrez from Azafrán (Spain) will prepare an elevated 5-course menu, which is designed to entertain the senses.

Each of the Chefs will be preparing one Signature Dish, which will represent their terroir and philosophy.

The theme of this year’s ceremony is ‘The role of women in gastronomy’, which is why Bacchus, together with JRE and MasterCard, have made it their mission to support the professional development of female chefs in the culinary industry.

During this evening, MasterCard, committed to fostering the development of young professionals within the food industry, will also unveil its latest initiative, announcing scholarships for aspiring individuals.
