The event was jointly hosted by the Hanoi Media Association, Vietnam Art and Culture Exhibition Center, Hanoi Tourism Association, Hanoi Professional Chefs Association. It provided a venue for chefs to come together to bring Vietnamese cuisine to other world-class culinary standards.

At the exchange program, three chefs from 5-star restaurants and hotels in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City representing Vietnamese, South Korean and French cuisines offered special and exclusive dishes and exchange experiences.

“Along with the strength of the natural landscape, rich history and culture, Vietnam has increasingly affirmed its position as one of the countries with unique cuisine, attractive to domestic and foreign tourists. This event is an opportunity to promote Vietnamese cuisine, helping people understand the importance of culinary and chefs,” said Mr. Nguyen Manh Than, chairman of the Hanoi Tourism Association, at the event.

This was also an opportunity for domestic chefs to exchange, share and work with foreign colleagues in creating dishes that are tailored to the needs of foreign diners and spread the culinary value of Vietnam to the world, Mr. Than said.

Within the program, Hanoi’s visitors enjoyed typical Vietnamese dishes at the booths.
