Festival from April 29 to June 4 again cultivates culinary savoir-faire.
The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is holding Hanoi’s Les Arômes Festival 2016 from April 29 to June 4.
This year’s festival, the ninth at the Metropole, kicked off on April 29 at La Veranda with a wine dinner featuring Craggy Wines from New Zealand and will be followed by La Nuit by Sofitel on May 27, a night of glamour at Angelina restaurant and lounge, and then conclude on June 4 with a wine dinner featuring Bordeaux’s famous Domaine de Chevalier at L’Orangerie.
Headlining this year’s event is Chef Christophe Grilo, a 38-year-old executive pastry chef and baker who has cooked for Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Barbra Streisand.
Chef Grilo will conduct a “Bread Master Class” on May 19, by invitation only. On May 20 the Metropole will introduce the Chef’s new bread collection at its dining venues and will begin retailing the collection at L’Epicerie. One night later Chef Grilo will help “Uncork the Summer” at Les Arômes’ special picnic dinner at La Veranda, featuring wines by Chateau Grand Verdus. With live jazz music, a bread counter, and a cold cuts station, this will truly be a unique summer night to remember.
