“A Touch of Africa” Gastronomy Week at Café de Paris


“A Touch of Africa”: Monte-Carlo SBM will be sporting the colours of South Africa from 29 September to 6 October 2012.


cafE-paris-GFAfter a summer filled with artistic and cultural events, the Monte-Carlo SBM Group will be sporting a “Touch of Africa” for a week in partnership with the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg and as part of a tribute to South Africa, HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco’s home country.


Saturday 29 September marks the beginning of festivities with a prestigious “South Africa Night” Gala Night in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco. The South African musician-songwriter-composer Johnny Clegg will hold a concert in the splendid Salle Garnier of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo. The concert will be followed by a gala dinner on the terrace of Café de Paris.


To prolong your culinary voyage, the chef of Emperors Palace, Dobby Doolooa, will be working together with Jean-Claude Brugel, chef of Café de Paris, and his teams, during the week of 29 September.

They will be dreaming up and creating a menu of South African dishes and suggestions. Epicures and gastronomes will appreciate the culinary journey and the subtle pairing of food and wine.

To welcome guests in optimal comfort, the terrace of the Café de Paris will be entirely covered with a suitable structure that has been carefully set up and decorated.



Monte-Carlo SBM is very happy to support, accompany and promote this type of event which conveys the values of humanity and generosity that have been motivating the group for the last 150 years. The Monte-Carlo SBM Group will be donating the profits of these events to the Princess Charlene Foundation.
