HA NOI — Ha Noi connoisseurs will have a chance to savour the rich flavours and textures of Canadian cuisine at a culinary festival launching today.

Organised by the Canadian Embassy in Viet Nam, the "Festival of Canadian Flavours" is being held to celebrate the 35th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and Viet Nam.

"The event also offers a taste of Canada to Ha Noi," says newly arrived Ambassador Deanna Horton.

During the nine-day festival, Canadian guest chef Derek Furlani will present various signature dishes prepared with ingredients imported from Canada, including pan seared Canadian clearwater scallops, maple marinated fresh Atlantic salmon, traditional roast prime rib and warm apple pie with Cheddar cheese or ice cream. A robust selection of wines will also be served, including Canada’s world-famous "ice wine", which is made from grapes that are frozen while still on the vine.

"The fresh air, clean water and fertile soil of Canada make for delicious, healthy ingredients and wine that we hope will become part of modern Vietnamese fine dining culture and lifestyle," says the Ambassador.

The festival runs through November 14 at the Brasserie Westlake in the Sofitel Plaza, Ha Noi. — VNS
