The restaurant L’Hirondelle at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo wins the 2016 Société des Bains de Mer Christmas Yule Log Cake Contest Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:51:19 +0000 chloefolco The jury has unanimously selected Pastry Chef Cédric Desideri’s Chestnut Yule Log 


Société des Bains de Mer has been preparing the year-end festivities since September, and the resort’s pastry chefs have come up with a signature yule log inspired by a “mountain and enchantment” theme.


An important centrepiece in traditional festive family meals and an afternoon tea favourite in Monaco, the yule log has become the focus of a contest for Société des Bains de Mer pastry chefs. All chefs who participated in the 2016 yule log contest brilliantly demonstrated their talent and expertise. Festive, magical and elaborate, the creations were


judged by a jury of professionals including journalists and other influential members who unanimously voted for the “Chestnut Yule Log” by the young pastry chef from Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo.


Cédric Desideri, Pastry Chef at the restaurant L’Hirondelle at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, was inspired by childhood strolls in the forest in his creation. Like an invitation to an exceptional bucolic journey, the yule log cake is made of mandarin orange and a light chestnut mousse on a flaky praline pine nut biscuit.


His creation will be featured on Société des Bains de Mer menus and available in restaurants with verbena ice cream or for take-away.

If you feel inspired to try your hand at pastry-making, here is the chestnut yule log recipe – a sure bet for impressing your holiday guests!

モナコ新国立美術館にてレオン・バクストを偲ぶ Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:52:13 +0000 vovf ソベール館では、ロシアバレエの象徴的なコスチュームや内装をデザインしたデザイナーの生誕150年 を記念してデザイン・ドリームの特別展覧会を開催します。



モナコ新国立美術館を2つに分け、この秋はダンスのリズムを取り入れました。パロマ館では振り付けや動きについてアプローチする一方で、ソベール館では、現代の偉大なる振付師であるレオン・バクストの作品から想像した世界を紹介します。1866年に生まれたこの芸術家は、1910年代に多くロシアバレエの国際的な成功に貢献した作品を残しました。NNMMとモンテカルロ・ソシエテ・デ・バン・ド・メールのコレクション、そして各国の協力により、150点ものデザイン、模型や衣装が、 Schéhérazadeバレエ、薔薇の精(Le Spectre de la Rose)、 牧神の午後への前奏曲(L’Après-midi d’un Faune)、ダフニスとクロエ(Daphnis et Chloé)のサロンに通じるこの展覧会のために一堂に集められました。



《このプロジェクトの骨組みを形成するのは夢です。 薔薇の精(Le Spectre de la Rose)にあるように、若い女性が素敵な男性に舞踏会で出会った後にまどろむ姿。同様にヴァーツラフ・ニジンスキーが振り付けをした 牧神の午後への前奏曲(L’Après-midi d’un Faune) では、あるダンサーがニンフを見てエロティックな幻想を抱き自分を慰める姿。》展示会の共同責任者であるCélia Bernasconi氏は、既にロシアバレエ100年祭ですでに美術館とコラボレーションをしている教授のJohn E. Bowlt氏とともに語ります。NNMMの招待で、現代美術作家兼振付師であるニック・モース氏(Nick Mauss)もバクストがデザインしたプリントファブリックモデルからインスピレーションを得て、ソベール館の一角に記念碑的な装飾を設計しました。ロシアの振付師の作品を拡大した絵画は、現代的な解釈方法です。



ギリシャ、ペルシャとシャムの古代文化でだけでなく、ロシアの民俗芸術も参考にして、バクストはオリエントとモダンスタイルの芸術の融合を実現しました。当時の資料を参考に、この展示会は、レオン・バクストの装飾美術の普及に貢献したジャン・コクトー、バレンタインヒューゴとジョルジュ・バルビエなどのアーティストによる作品が華を添えます。「展覧会は、特にテキスタイルデザインに焦点を当て、ファッションデザイナーのイヴ・サンローランにつながるサロンにしたかったのです」とCélia Bernasconi氏は述べます。Schéhérazadeの内装やコスチュームにインスピレーションを得た1991年のイヴ・サンローラン−リヴ・ゴーシュコレクションのアクセサリーモデルやボードでコースは終わります。

The Route du Goût 2016 Wed, 14 Sep 2016 14:56:14 +0000 francoisblanc Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is involved in the 2nd edition of this major Organic Festival

A spotlight on organic

The latest instalment of the Route du Goût will take place on 12 to 16 October 2016. Founded by Paolo Sari, chef at the Monte-Carlo Beach and founding member of the association Bio Chef Global Spirit, the Organic Festival aims at raising widespread awareness about preserving the environment and the natural wealth of our region. An organic market on Quai Antoine 1er, a tennis competition for youngsters at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, an invention competition and a culinary regatta along the legendary Riva are just some of the events that will delight young and old alike for 5 days.


Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer and the region are getting involved in the event

The highlight of the event: Two Organic Gala Dinners.

For the “Gala de la Route du Goût” on 13 October, Chef Paolo Sari is inviting Jean-André Charial, two-starred Michelin Chef of l’Oustau de Baumanière restaurant, to take part in a session of organic haute cuisine for this dinner prepared by four hands. Students from the Lycée Hôtelier de Monaco will provide culinary support and service.

On 14 October, 10 children from 8 to 12 years of age will support 10 Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer in preparing the Gala dinner. From 19.30, the Chef/Child duos will present their creations on stalls at the Flavours Market, the “Marché des Saveurs”.


A humanitarian project

Although this initiative arose from ecological awareness, its main objective is humanitarian. The funds raised during the evening and culinary events are intended for a charity project supported by Bio Chef Global Spirit. In partnership with the OSO Foundation, the association is working to fund and build an organic hospitality school in Madagascar.

In addition, through the Moses.Bio® and Orto® projects (organic vegetable garden) the association will provide the technical and financial support needed to develop ecological practices and organic agriculture in the region.

Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2016 Mon, 12 Sep 2016 14:34:28 +0000 francoisblanc From November 24th through to December 3rd, the 11th edition of the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival will take place at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo!



2016 is the year of the 11th edition of the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo.


Since its creation 10 years ago in 2006, the festival has enjoyed the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco whom we would like to thank for the interest he has always shown.


The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2016 will be held from November 24th through to December 3rd and will introduce us to, or possibly reacquaint us with, the biggest jazz stars as well as today’s fresh talents in this wonderful setting, a temple of music and art for over one hundred years.


Faithful to itself, the festival reflects jazz music as it is today: open to all musical trends but always giving way to tradition, never static and taking inspiration from all the world’s music, paying particular attention to artistic creation. 


Throughout this year’s event we will encounter the greatest musicians of our time, the most beautiful voices in contemporary jazz and some great soloists.


The 2016 programme reflects these 10 years of Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival. It shows that jazz is still as freedom loving and diverse, with no limitations.


We will be previewing, in an outstanding Monte-Carlo residence, Lambert Wilson, who will pay tribute to Yves Montand in a jazz spirit.


On Sunday November 27th at 6 pm, Angélique Kidjo, the great voice of today’s Africa, will present her show “Eve”.


From Tuesday November 29th to Saturday December 3rd we will be hosting a concert every evening featuring the biggest jazz players of today including Manu Katché, Richard Bona and Ibrahim Maalouf. We will equally be paying tribute to two jazz legends as we will be welcoming Al Jarreau, accompanied by the NDR Bigband, and Wayne Shorter with his quartet. As always, the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival is also the way to find out about the jazz of tomorrow, with trumpeter Airelle Besson, Sarah Lancman, the Malia / André Manoukian duo and the Alune Wade and Harold López-Nussa quartet around their “Havana-Paris-Dakar” project. Finally, we will be dedicating a special evening to Robert Charlebois who will be celebrating 50 years of song at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo. Madeleine Peyroux will be sharing the billing with a presentation of her new album “Secular Hymns”.


For this 10th year, the festival will spread into the Casinos and several establishments of Société des Bains de Mer with the Funk Off fanfare, Mike Sanchez and a lot of other artists to be discovered at the event.


Have a good festival and long live jazz!



Prices: 80€ 


24th, 29th, 30th november and 1st, 2nd, 3rd december: 

Doors open at 8:00 pm

Concert starts at 8:30 pm

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Place du Casino, this hotel “with its feet in the water” is surrounded by a pine wood and offers a stunning view of the seemingly infinite expanse of blue sea on the French Riviera.

An exclusive, elegant design 

Entirely refurbished by the architect and interior designer India Madhavi, the Monte-Carlo Beach is an ode to the Mediterranean. The sea and the light seem to fill the rooms and suites at the Monte-Carlo Beach, creating a spacious, almost weightless atmosphere. The decor inspired by the 1930s takes us on a journey to a timeless place where elegance and modernity go hand in hand.

The Michelin-starred restaurant Elsa features products from the gardens of the Rivera and pays tribute to seasonal produce. Michelin-starred organic Chef Paolo Sari has selected the best local farmers to create a deliciously gourmet yet light, healthy and 100% organic menu that changes with the seasons.

The Musical Box presents “Genesis – Selling England By The Pound” at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo on 12th November 2016 Tue, 23 Aug 2016 13:05:33 +0000 francoisblanc The Musical Box in concert in Monaco


The Musical Box holds a special place in the world of Tribute Bands. This Canadian ensemble, founded in 1993, is actually considered as the best existing performance group, thanks to its extraordinary work in historic reconstruction of Genesis’ repertoire. Delving into the group’s archives and into those of the fans, the members of The Musical Box have succeeded in identically recreating the music but also the visuals of the group created by Peter Gabriel. Also, it’s a real trip back in time which invites fans to rediscover the theatricality and the musicality of concerts given by Genesis in the 70’s.


The current tour is entirely devoted to one of Genesis’ emblematic masterpieces: “Selling England by the Pound”. Released in 1973, the album and the tour which followed redefined progressive rock and gave Genesis worldwide success. The Musical Box, who have played in the most prestigious concert halls, give scenic reproductions which verge on perfection: “They play better than us!” Phil Collins said when he listened to them, while Peter Gabriel confessed to being “impressed by the quality of the production and by the band’s attention to detail”.  Continuing the work of Genesis live, The Musical Box is now the only Tribute Band to be promoted by the group.


To say that’s we’re looking forward to listening to and seeing the characters from Dancing with the Moonlight Knight or Firth of Fifth come to life again on the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo stage would be putting it mildly.

Procol Harum in concert at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo on 15th October 2016 Tue, 23 Aug 2016 09:04:34 +0000 francoisblanc Procol Harum in concert in Monaco


One song was enough to make Procol Harum a legend of popular music forever. Who didn’t slow dance to A Whiter Shade of Pale? Released in 1967 on the group’s first album, the song, inspired by one of Bach’s cantatas, went global. To date it has been the most played song in 75 years, in all formats! But Procol Harum is not a one hit wonder. Ten of their albums have been recently remastered and a 2-CD anthology entitled “Secrets of the Hive”, was released.


The group, reformed with new musicians around its leader and singer Gary Brooker, continues to give concerts worldwide with huge success, as evidenced by their latest live albums “Inside/Outside”, “Some Long Road” and “MMX”.


Gary Brooker’s voice, Keith Reid’s texts along with Procol Harum’s timeless soul are still just as fascinating as ever. The great musicality of the group (Matt Pegg: bass, Josh Philips: organ, Geoff Dunn: drums, Geoff Whitehorn: guitar, Gary Brooker: piano and vocals) will resonate through the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo on October 15.

Cock Robin “Chinese Driver Tour” in concert at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo on 15th October 2016 Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:50:11 +0000 francoisblanc Cock Robin + Procol Harum in concert in Monaco


In 2015, Cock Robin celebrated the 30th anniversary of When Your Heart Is Weak, the single that made them a worldwide name. Delivered with the passionate vocals of Peter Kingsbery, it is one of those magical songs you only have to hear once to never forget.

After a handful of Top 50 hits, a number of European tours and a part in the English-language version of  Starmania, which took Only The Very Best, performed by Peter, to the top of the charts, the original duo, formed with Anna LaCazio, separated last year.

But Peter Kingsbery, now living in France, has kept Cock Robin soaring with a new partner, Coralie Vuillemin,  who sings on Chinese Driver, the group’s new album released in March. After a highly acclaimed summer festival tour, Cock Robin is back in the Côte d’Azur for an exceptional concert at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo, a venue that will offer the perfect acoustics for Peter Kingsbery’s powerful voice and the group’s music.

Pendragon in concert at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo on 14th October 2016 Fri, 19 Aug 2016 08:21:15 +0000 francoisblanc Pendragon in concert in Monaco


The story begins in 1978 in the tranquil city of Stroud (Gloucestershire, England), where four happy lads decided to form a rock band. There’s Nick Barrett (guitar and vocals), Julian Baker (guitar and vocals), Nigel Harris (drums) and Stan Cox (bass). Zeus Pendragon was born. Full of ambition and “joie de vivre”, our four pals started by playing covers of Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Santana and Jimi Hendrix, before writing their own songs, in the more and more “progressive” trend, as some musicians left the group while others joined.


The encounter with Marillion, who had growing success, would be decisive in the group’s direction who became the shorter Pendragon. From 1982, both groups regularly toured together, to more and more impressive audiences. However, they had to wait until 1991 and through many line-up changes for Pendragon to find its definitive form and record the album “The World”, which marked its real recording début. “The Window of Life” and “The Masquerade Overture” followed and ensured their international success. 


In France in particular, the fans love Pendragon’s progressive rock flighty guitar lines. After having released a new album in 2014 (“Men Who Climb Mountains”), in 2015 the group began an anniversary tour entitled “The Masquerade Overture”, the centrepiece which they will play at Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo. One hell of a line up for lovers of progressive rock!
