JRE Talent & Passion 2019

For the fourth year running, 15 leading Croatian chefs from the renowned international association JRE (Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe) will cook together in person in front of guests.
They will cook in a specially selected location for a special cause – to raise funds for equipping the practical classroom of the Opatija Catering School through ticket sales and thus directly foster the education of prospective cooks and hospitality workers. The event begins at 6 p.m. at the stunning Art Nouveau building of the Rijeka Fish Market, which for a single night will be transformed into a “pick your fish & dish” restaurant, where guests can enjoy the unique opportunity to communicate with the chefs and watch them in action. The food will be complemented with wines produced by select Croatian winemakers, while the pastry chefs will also set up a dessert table. The programme will take place on two floors, the ground floor and the Fish Market's gallery. Tickets priced at HRK 400.00 are available for purchase at www.rijekamarketplace.com.
