Food lovers in Vietnam will have the chance to learn more about authentic French cuisine through French-style dinners offered at 17 restaurants across the country on March 19.

Seventeen cooks, including seven Vietnamese nationals, were selected to serve French-style dinners at their restaurants, French Ambassador to Vietnam Jean Noel Poirier said at a press briefing on March 11.

The meals are among 1,500 dinners that will be available at restaurants and French Embassies in 150 countries around the globe on March 19, he added.

The activity is part of the “Gout de France/Good France” project initiated by French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Laurent Fabius with the intent to honour French cuisine.-VNA
