(Hong Kong, May 14, 2018) May is the month to experience the richness of France, FeedMe Guru has partnered with Le French GourMay to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2018. The world-famous flavours and aromas of South France, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur has been brought to Hong Kong by selected top-notch restaurants.
Gastronomic celebration with 16 restaurants
FeedMe Guru has lined-up 16 high-end restaurants to honour Le French GourMay 2018. The authentic South France dining experience is made possible with exclusively crafted menus featuring monumental treats such as Bouillabaisse and Salade niçoise alongside a fine selection of wine. Furthermore, the French delicacies have been taken to greater heights thanks to fusion fine dining with Asian ingredients, modern French Technique and soaring imagination by the talents of Michelin-starred chefs and guest chefs.
South France Specialties
The menus showcase exceptional French cuisine from the region's sea, hillsides, and mountain pastures, delivering authentic flavours with the best ingredients that France has to offer. Its Mediterranean climate makes the sunshine 300 days a year, providing the best environment for producing olives, honey and black diamond - truffles, just to name a few amongst the many treasures of the region. This is reflected on the plate with colourful and fragrant dishes by the exceptional chefs.
Wines and Appellation
Between Provence and Rhône river valley, the area’s viticulture showcases a talent for combining the secular tradition with modernity. Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur is the world’s biggest producer (10% of world production), the region in France that has the largest variety of wines, and the oldest vineyard. This diversity and quality have been recognized in France and internationally by label “Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée” (Controlled Designation of Origin). Specific wines have been selected for a complete guide through the South of France this May in Hong Kong.
