During late autumn before the cold winter actually comes is the best time for French chefs to wander around the market and come up with new menu ideas. As one of the most talented chefs of world-renowned French gastronomy, Alain Dutournier once again comes to Vietnam to bring culinary enthusiasts a creative menu of natural ingredients, selected, and cooked by the head chef.

His special winter menu, as usual, will be unveiled at the very last minute to bring diners a pleasant surprise with an explosion of tastes, colours, and emotions in cuisine. Guests to the Festival of Flavours will not only experience interesting breakthroughs in the use of new ingredients but discover life in southwest France where Alain Dutournier was born and raised, about the sweet childhood memories of this talented chef. Diners will have the chance to experience a perfect pairing of food and wine as Alain Dutournier is not only a Michellin-starred chef but also a wine expert.
