A fireworks of culinary and horological highlights

Last weekend I had the pleasure to spend a few days with Blancpain and the brand ambassador Chef Holger Bodendorf for the 20th Sylt Gourmet Festival.

Landhaus Stricker

Holger Bodendorf‘s Landhaus Stricker has again been partly transformed into a showroom with not only a plentiful of exciting Blancpain timepieces displayed, but also providing a watchmakers workbench with the Blancpain Atelier manager Germany being present to answer any technical questions or even do some small adjustments on watches of the guests.

The Sylt Gourmet Festival has a tradition of bringing Chefs from all over the world to accompany the local masters. This year the guest Chefs came from Mexico, Oman, the Maledives, India and Spain. On an all day Safari the guests visited 5 different restaurants, each offering sensational food and excellent wines. For getting around two historic Magirus busses provided travel in style, and the island’s nature provided a fanatastic scenery.
