Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - A group of internationally renowned chefs will be present in Hanoi during the first week of October for a culinary extravaganza.

The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi will host Culinary Stars 2018 from October 1 to 7, bringing together nine international chefs with a combined eight Michelin stars.

Four AccorHotels chefs will also join in to take diners on a gastronomic journey rarely experienced in Vietnam.

This is the first Culinary Stars. It will feature five dinners and five other events including a cooking class, a product launch, a chocolate buffet accompanied by a fashion show, a wine and cheese showcase and a special Sunday brunch.

“The gathering of 13 of the finest chefs from three continents in one of the most historical venues in Hanoi, a city with one of the great culinary traditions, should be something akin to the perfect storm,” said Metropole General Manager William Haandrikman.
