The Gems of South France

The Gems of South France


South of France, colloquially known as Le Midi (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur), is the second most visited region of France. It is known to be a land of gastronomical delights, moulded by the sun and and the neighboring Mediterranean sea. 

Thanks to Le French GourMay, the culinary gems of South France will be on full display in Hong Kong this May. 17 partnering restaurants are proud to present to you various signature regional treats:

- Savour the exquisite contemporary French cuisine “Les Petit Farcis”, Provencal stuffed fresh vegetable with seasonal flavors, in a lavish and elegant manor-like setting at Seasons.

- Sample the infamous Mediterranean horse mackerel carpaccio with raspberry, green peas and Kumquat virgin sauce, prepared by Restaurant Petrus, perched high above the city with breath-taking views of Victoria Harbour. 

- Don’t miss the perfectly Marinated Royal Sea Bream with ‘Rosette Style’ prepared by Michelin-Starred Chef Francis Chauveau & Chef Stéphane Gaborieau as part of their “Starry Lunch” menu at Brasserie on the Eighth.

The sun-kissed, fertile soils in South France produces miraculous red, white and rosé wines making it a heaven for wine-lovers. 

- Grab a glass of Château Roubine La Vie en Rose from Côtes de Provence, paired with Pissaladière, a traditional bread dough from Nice with caramelized onions, black olives & anchovies at Rech by Alain Ducasse

- Delight your taste buds with a fine selection of Rosé wines alongside refined service, classical arts and antiquities, with live dinner jazz at Gaddi’s.

Join in the Le French GourMay festivities today.

Bon Appétit!
