Davidoff Cigars has unveiled its new Limited Chefs Edition in a spectacular white gourmet night at Minitas Beach, Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic. The event was highlighted by the global launch of the Limited Chefs Edition, a special cigar line, created exclusively by six international chefs.
“When I first met with my colleagues and the Davidoff team to discuss the blend of Davidoff’s first Chefs Edition, it was important to me that every connoisseur would have fun with the fine cigar. As a chef, my key aim is to deliver new delights and to make people happy, and that’s why I love my job and the Davidoff Chefs Edition project,” said the famed Swiss chef, Peter Knogl, from the Cheval Blanc of Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois in Basel/Switzerland.
Apart from Peter Knogl, the chefs who applied their refined palates in influencing this unique cigar were Renato Wüst of Bad Ragaz Grand Resort in Switzerland, TV Chef Ali Gungormus, of Le Canard HH Pageou, Munich in Germany, TV Chef Léa Linster of Restaurant Léa Linster in Luxembourg, Michel Trama of Relais & Chateau, Puymirol in France and Maria Marte of Club Allard, Madrid in Spain.
Between them the six chefs boast nine Michelin stars and the two Swiss chefs, Knogl and Wüst have 19 and 15 GaultMillau points respectively Wüst also bears the honour of being GaultMillau CigarMan of the Year 2016.
