Headlining act of the London restaurant scene and the youngest chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars, Tom Aikens will be cooking up a tropical storm at the prestigious Royal Palm in Mauritius from 25th  - 27th March 2013.

Guests will be able to partake in a series of one-off Master Classes and sit down to private four-course dinners cooked by the celebrity chef, over the three nights.

Dedicated to serving ethically sourced, seasonal ingredients of the highest quality, Tom will be working with Royal Palm and the island's local suppliers to re-craft his acclaimed signature dishes and give them a Mauritian-inspired twist.

The exclusive event will conclude with champagne on the beach and a demonstration of Mauritian cuisine hosted by both Tom Aikens and Royal Palm's award-winning French chef, Michel de Matteis. Here, guests will discover the fusion of flavours that creates Mauritius' complex gastronomy, a melting pot of Indian, Creole, Chinese, European influences that trace the island's heritage.

Tom commented; "I'm very much looking forward to visiting Royal Palm and working alongside Chef Michel de Matteis. It is a great honour to partner with a leading gastronomic hotel and have the opportunity to offer guests my style of cuisine with a Mauritian twist incorporating local spices and vanilla, for which the island is famous for.
