Dolce’s Petanque Trophy For Chefs 2018

Tropical island hopping during ‘La Petanque des Dom-Tom…’

On Monday 6 August Dolce’s Petanque Trophy For Chefs will take you along to the warm French overseas areas of the Dom-Tom. Taste the atmosphere of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Come along with us to the rhythm of Saint Martin and La Réunion. Enjoy the Creole conviviality of Guyane and Mayotte. An event, which is not to be missed, bathing in the Creole heat from IÎle de la Réunion …

What is it?

Dolce’s Petanque Trophy For Chefs is a unique event which has no equal to compare it to. Organised by Dolce World, this pleasant networking event combines a sportive touch with a culinary approach. In 2018 all the stops will be pulled out in order to make the Dolce’s Petanque Trophy For Chefs an unforgettable day. The theme ‘La Petanque des Dom-Tom’ will ensure an exotic atmosphere to the beat of a Creole rhythm which will resound for a long time.

The petanque games are alternated with ‘Tournées Générales’ by the Dolce partners. It is the ultimate way to discover gastronomy in a playful manner. Each petanque team consists of 3 players (triplette) and the captain is always a chef. A unique event, the only one of its kind, a day full of fun and gastronomy of the highest level in an exotic atmosphere!


The location for this sportive-gastronomic event is Chalet-Suisse along the Elizabethlaan in Knokke-Heist. But this time we will be island hopping and Chalet-Suisse will be submerged in the typical convivial warmth of the Dom-Tom for the occasion.

Chefs can meet in KARRE DES DALONS for a chat in a cosy atmosphere. LE KABAR will provide us with the most surprising and exotic cocktails. At LA CASE BOURBON you’ll enjoy various stir-fried dishes, Creole barbecue, fresh salads and so much more. We’ll finish with a veritable ‘Outdoor Zouk Party’ at VILLAGE MALOYA.

Who will be there?

Chefs, hospitality employees, gastronomes, foodies or they who simply love a game of petanque laced with culinary indulgences. Especially for this occasion, Maître Rôtisseur Nicolas Rivière from IÎle de la Réunion will drop by to answer all your questions about herbs and spices in the Creole cuisine …

Patrons for this event are two exceptional chefs: Chef Frederic Deceuninck (Le Sel Gris*) from Knokke-Heist is a master in bringing joie de vivre to the table and this shows in a sublime way in his dishes. Chef René Mathieu (Château de Bourglinster*) from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a specialist in ‘vegan gastronomy’ and brings us exceptional flavours.

Mastercook of Belgium and Maître Rôtisseur Peter De Groote will pamper the guests with a particularly energetic and colourful breakfast, various ‘Tournées Générales’ and a Creole lunch and dinner.
