Jazz Ascona with a visit from Chef Desi
24 - 28 June 2022
Four days under the sign of jazz! From 24 to 28 June, as part of the Jazz Ascona Festival, atmospheric jazz music will guide you through the summer evenings. Fittingly, we'll be punctuating the event with a visit from Chef Desi Anderson from New Orleans at the Marina Restaurant. At a young age, she fulfilled her long-cherished dream and opened Café Gumbo & Jazz - thus combining her two great passions. Her gumbos (roux stew) are among the best in Central Michigan, and Chef Desi gained valuable experience from guest appearances in notable Michelin-starred kitchens in the US. She looks forward to preparing a rich menu of starters, mains and desserts and sharing her love and knowledge of her Creole heritage.
