Blue Palace Resort & Spa Launches Inspiring Culinary Concept
Blue Palace Resort & Spa is a Luxury Collection Resort located on the island of Crete in Greece. This award-winning haven of charm and awe-inspiring views, boasts of pristine blue waters on the Aegean Sea and private beach that epitomize the spirit of wilderness and stylish holiday. With top-of-the-range luxury suites and bungalows cloaked by contemporary decor, this bohemian resort offers one of a kind experiences.
Exciting New Culinary Concept
Destined to strengthen its position as a dining destination, a new culinary concept was born. This gastronomic notion is based on the premise of providing a dining experience that is authentic, fresh and wholesome. Curated by the newly-appointed Creative Consultant chef Athinagoras Kostakos and Chef a La Carte Komninos Mouflouzelis in collaboration with Blue Palace’s Executive Chef Alexandros Lefkaditis, what sets this new food project apart, is its ethos to spice up the known Greek classics and Mediterranean cuisine to give them a je ne sais quoi mouth-watering dining experience.
Bringing to the fore a culinary attitude that showcases the Chefs’ vision for quality food, excellent hospitality and a laid-back style to resonate with the surroundings, Chef Kostakos has created menus inspired by the unique characteristics of the surrounding area, fusing together a stylish food aesthetic with healthy, local dishes with a nod to international flavors and cultures.
