French chefs face off for sustainable seafood

How would you like to try dinner in this beautiful French seaside villa, cooked by a Michelin-starred chef?

The home is Chateau Richeux, the restaurant is La Coquillage, and the chef is Olivier Roellinger. And Roellinger is concerned about commercial and environmental pressures on fish and seafood - so he's helping do something about it. As TheFishSite reports,

Organised to encourage French demand for responsibly sourced seafood, the three month long French National Catering Competition on Sustainable Seafood has challenged French trainee and young professional chefs to devise and cook recipes, which are both delectable and sustainable...Olivier Roellinger, four-time Michelin star winner, Vice President of the Relais & Châteaux Association and ambassador of the competition said: "Over-fishing is an issue which affects everyone who loves food, from haute cuisine chefs to restaurant diners, to cooks at home.”

Mr Roellinger continued: “The young generation will have to be creative to face new challenges that concern seafood products today. So I am really happy that it is our young chefs, who are leading the way in showing how haute cuisine can scale new heights using sustainable seafood. I look forward to tasting the competitors’ creations on 27th February.”

The finals take place February 27th in Saint-Malo, France. Perhaps some day we'll be able to taste the results!
