AsemconnectVietnam - The Gout de France/Good France 2017, a global event on the French gastronomy, in Vietnam will bring together chefs from 24 restaurants in Hanoi, Hoi An, Da Nang, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City on March 21.
The event, a dinner to honour France’s cuisine, will take place at the French Embassy in Hanoi and the French Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, French Consul General to HCM City Emmanuel Ly-Batallan said at a press conference on March 14.
Chefs of French cuisine will have a chance to show off their skills and share experience with peers, thus celebrating France’s gastronomy.
At this year’s Gout de France – the third of its kind so far, high school and university students will also take part in the preparation of a French-style meal, the diplomat said.
He added that in HCM City, the Hoa Sen University and the University of Technology, which offers cookery courses, will respectively coordinate with France’s Vatel university and Cergy Pontoise University to help high school students come to learn about the programme and experience of alumni who used to pursue cuisine and hotel-related courses in France.
The Gout de France is organised in about 150 countries around the world with a view to honouring the creativity and quality of France’s gastronomy, which is considered a pillar of the country’s heritage.
