I


t was five years ago that Dieter Koschina, the executive chef of Portugal’s only 2-star


Michelin restaurant Vila Joya, came up with the idea of livening up the quietest time of the year in mid-January with a gourmet extrava- ganza of the likes rarely seen anywhere in the world, let alone here in the Algarve. Launched to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the untimely passing of Vila Joya's founder Claudia Jung, it is an emo- tional time for her daughter Joy who runs the resort today and all the team who remember


her so fondly. But it is a time of celebration of all that Claudia loved, and the atmosphere, as different chefs from around the world enter- tain guests with their culinary creations, is nothing short of extraordinary.


Each year has seen the event get bigger and


better, and this fifth festival promises to reach even greater heights, with no less than five 3- star Michelin chefs and three holders of 2 stars cooking individual menus over eight of the ten evenings of the festival, whilst the other two nights bring multiple chefs together. 

oi há cinco anos atrás que Dieter Koschina, o chefe executivo do único restaurante


com duas estrelas Michelin em Portugal, o Vila Joya, teve a ideia de animar a época mais calma do ano, em meados de Janeiro, com uma extrava- gância gourmet que raramente se vê em algum lado do mundo, quanto mais aqui no Algarve. Lançado de forma a coincidir com o décimo


aniversário da morte precoce da fundadora do Vila Joya, Claudia Jung, esta é uma época difícil para a sua filha Joy, que hoje gere o resort, e para toda a equipa que se lembra dela com tanto afecto. 
