Jean Christophe Basseau from Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa sublimates the finest canapé

Social media

Canapés are chic and refined bites that whet your appetite before the main course. They are everywhere – among the best dishes, in the daily cuisine, at gourmet tables, for picnics, buffets, cocktails or celebrations.

Jean Christophe Basseau, Executive Chef at Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, masters the art of sophisticated canapés. Using ingredients with a tropical feel, he invites you to discover his “Crab, avocado and mango Tartlet” and Mauritian cuisine. A beautiful prelude before relishing the turkey, capon, lobster or oysters and ending on a sweet note, whether it is a Yule log or a festive dessert.

The festive marathon is kicking off soon in Mauritius. Open invitation to all!
