An evening of imaginative gastronomy by two-Michelin-starred Chef Mauro Colagreco 

On 27 November 2015, Alila Villas Soori presents a spectacular evening of gastronomy crafted by one of the most celebrated and innovative stars of the culinary world, Mauro Colagreco, head chef of two-Michelin-starred Mirazur restaurant in Menton, France sits on the 11th place at San Pallegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants

An Argentinian born of Italian and Spanish descent, Mauro perfected his craft under the talented Bernard Loiseau at La Côte d'Or in Saulieu, and Alain Passard at L'Arpège in Paris, where he developed his strong sense of creativity. 

In 2006, he took over the Mirazur restaurant, located on the Côte d’Azur overlooking the Mediterranean. Chef Mauro and Mirazur have since earned much international acclaim. Mirazur was awarded its first Michelin star within a year of opening, to be followed by a second Michelin star in 2012, making Mauro the first and only Argentinian chef to achieve this honour. Mirazur has also been a permanent fixture in the annual San Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants list since 2008. 

In another first, Mauro was named ‘Chef of the Year’ by the French guide Gault Millau in 2009, becoming the first non-French chef to be given the title. He went on to be awarded four Chef Hats by the same guide in 2010, and in 2012, received the prestigious Order of Arts and Letters by the French Minister of Culture for his contributions to French culinary culture. 

Mauro’s food philosophy is focused on freshness and simplicity, allowing the quality and flavour of the produce to shine. With the Italian border located just steps from Mirazur, Mauro has the pick of fresh produce from both the coastal markets on the Italian side and the Cote d’Azur on the French side, deftly combining these with vegetables and herbs grown in the restaurant’s gardens. 

Mauro’s menus however know no boundaries, offering a beautiful marriage of flavours that represent the very best of both locales, with influences from his Argentinian roots and travels around the world. His food is freedom of expression on a plate, crafted with innovation and a healthy dose of wild imagination ­– delighting diners with an experience that is both visually and tastefully exquisite.
