BackEvents » 4th Saigon Gourmet Week - All Women Cheffes Gourmet Festival in Saigon @ Sofitel Saigon Plaza

Sofitel Saigon Plaza and Disciples of Escoffier Vietnam will present the first All Women Cheffes culinary festival in Vietnam as part of the annual Saigon Gourmet Week. Coinciding with Vietnamese Women’s Day, three Michelin-starred Cheffes and six celebrity Cheffes will take over the Sofitel Saigon Plaza culinary department from 15th to 20th October 2019.

The highlight of the culinary festival will be the Cheffes Battle & Gala Dinner held on Saturday 19th October 2019 in the Diamond Hall of Sofitel Saigon Plaza. All Cheffes will lead teams of local female talents to prepare the main course for 120 guests using ingredients from a secret box, complementing the four other courses crafted by the hotel’s Executive Chef Stephane Leforestier. The Cheffes battle will be judged by Ms. Nguyen Phi Van (Chairwoman of Saigon Innovation Hub and Vietnam Angel Network), Ms. Duong Thu Huong (CEO of Forbes Vietnam) among other successful women from various industries in Vietnam.

Afternoon Tea at Boudoir Lounge is the latest addition to the festival, with a collection of sweet treats prepared by celebrity pastry-cheffe Keiko Nagae from Japan. The afternoon tea is available from 16th-18th October with seatings between 3pm to 6pm.

The festival will end on Vietnamese Women’s Day on 20th October with an All Star Cheffes Brunch and Buffet Dinner at Mezz Restaurant, as well as an intimate Dinner at L’Olivier Restaurant in the evening.
