HÀ NỘI — A group of internationally renowned chefs will converge in Hà Nội during the first week of October for a culinary extravaganza.

The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi will host Culinary Stars 2018 from October 1 to 7, bringing together nine international chefs with a combined eight Michelin stars. Four AccorHotels chefs will also join in to take diners on a gastronomic journey rarely experienced in Việt Nam.

This is the first Culinary Stars. It will feature five dinners and five other events including a cooking class, a product launch, a chocolate buffet accompanied by a fashion show, a wine and cheese showcase and a special Sunday brunch.

“The gathering of 13 of the finest chefs from three continents in one of the most historical venues in Hà Nội, a city with one of the great culinary traditions, should be something akin to the perfect storm,” said Metropole general manager William Haandrikman.

Each of the chefs highlighted in this year’s culinary spectacle brings his or her unique flair and cultural influence. VNS
