The 3rd edition of Bonjour France- A Taste of France is currently ongoing from the 5th until the 21st of May 2017.. This French gastronomy festival will be offering sweet and savoury treats and all things delicious that France has to offer… Bonjour France is an official part of Le French Festival, which was used to be known as the French Art and Film Festival..
Bonjour France- A Taste of France is organised by Business France Malaysia, the French Trade Commission together with partner retailers, Isetan, GCH Retail and Jaya Grocer for foodies from all over the country to rediscover French delights throughout the month of May…
Four new French brands which has been carefully selected by partner-importer Global Pacific Victory will be launched in over 20 supermarket outlets across the nation.
Participating outlets includes Mercato, Cold Storage, Jason’s Food Hall, Jaya Grocers in Klang Valley and Ipoh as well as Isetan KLCC, so head over to your nearest or favorite outlet to check it out…
If you ever wanted to try out the scrumptious delicacies prepared by the famous and reputable French culinary school Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia, you can do so at the Pop Up Cade at Isetan KLCC where there will be two talented chefs helming the café, Chef Tan Chung Liang from WhupWhup and Chef Tho Lye Shean from Steaks and Lobsters. Other notable alumni Chefs Janice Siew from Petiteserie, Janice Lee from Jam and Kaya Café, and Sharina from Ri Café will be serving up their speciality treats at Jason’s Food Hall and Jaya Grocer Intermark..
There will also be a collaboration with Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, where from the 8th to 16th May, Gobo Upstairs Lounge and Grill will be hosting Chef de Cuisine Jimmy De Almeida from Annecy in France via their sister hotel, Shangri La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri in Abu Dhabi. Chef Jimmy will feature his signature dishes to suit all palettes in an a la carte menu and also in 2- course, 4-course and 6 – course set menus….
The main objective for this would be as a launching platform for new French brands in Malaysia as well as to put some spotlight on well-established French food and beverage brands available in Malaysia in support of French culture and her gastronomic heritage..
My media friend and I were actually pleasantly surprise to find many of these products very affordable, and cost less then what we imagined…, so do head over to Isetan KLCC for the fair now and get some French treats
