Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang, Malaysia celebrating International Gout De France/Good France
On 19th March 2015, 150 countries around the world will be celebrating French gastronomy in conjunction with the Gout De France/Good France.
Inspired by Auguste Escoffier’s “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners), the “French-style” menu with a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a selection of French cheeses, and a chocolate dessert is served to many diners worldwide in one day.
A list of restaurants from different categories will be participating in this unique global event, with several in Malaysia, including 1885 at Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang. “The main objective of the event is to celebrate and honor the merits of French cuisine,” says hotel manager Mr Harold Rainfroy.
