The Cuisine of Maya Bay, Monaco

© The Cuisine of Maya Bay, Monaco

Olivier Streiff is a chef unlike any other. His gothico-romantic style really sets him apart on the gastronomy scene. In Monaco, at Maya Bay, he creates show-stopping dishes. His plates are filled with sweet and salty flavours, as he incorporates the classics, as well as creative twists: cucumber sorbet, lemon balm mango chutney, red fruit vinaigrette, nougat risotto, cooking whichever dishes take his fancy.

Having passed through starred restaurants, Olivier Streiff one day met Jean-Victor Pastor, who offered him a job. An eccentric, fiery chef, he always knows how to hit the right note. On the slopes of the Mediterranean hills, his cuisine – a mixture of influences from Italy, the Mediterranean and Asia – is making waves with its liberal nature. Discover the acidic freshness of his cuisine and the irresistible playfulness that has resulted in so many inventive dishes, rice, chutneys, vinaigrettes and ice creams… A tribute to a revisited Côte d’Azur, its colours and smells.
