Chilli No. 5 recently held its first Tapas Pop Up event at Komo Monaco, an exclusive Michelin starred dining destination in the Principality of Monaco, headed up by acclaimed Italian-Argentinian chef Mauro Coalegreco and French pastry chef Pierre Herme.


The March event enabled guests to sample Chilli No 5’s gourmet hot sauces while enjoying exquisite food prepared by some of the world’s most esteemed chefs, including Leo Besnard, a Michelin starred French chef who travelled down from Geneva in Switzerland, Chilli No 5’s head chef, Andrea Pepe, and the culinary team at Komo Monaco.


Leo Besnard is one of the world’s youngest chefs to receive a Michelin star, gaining his first star aged just 26 in 2020. He is currently the chef de cuisine at Le Lion d’Or in Geneva, where he serves up modern French fare.


The exclusive event was strictly limited to just 50 guests, ensuring an intimate gathering coupled with the very finest cuisine.


The menu featured 12 expertly prepared cold and hot small plates, each paired with Chilli No.5 ‘s healthy hot sauces.
