Ho Chi Minh City, 25th
September 2019
? Sofitel Saigon Plaza and Disciples of
Escoffier Vietnam will present the first All

Vietnamese Women’s Day, three Michelin-starred Cheffes and six celebrity Cheffes
will take over the Sofitel Saigon Plaza culinary department from 15th
to 20th October 2019.



 



The event aims to honour women and their talents in
the world of gastronomy as well as raising awareness for the
career-opportunities available to women in the culinary industry. A private
focus group will also take place for women working in Accor hotels across
southern Vietnam, led by Accor’s Chief Talent and Culture Officer for Asia
Pacific - Christine Rumble. Accor recently announced the launch of WILD F&B (Women in Leadership
Disrupting Food and Beverage) ? an initiative which sets out to tackle the imbalance
of gender diversity in the food and beverage industry by offering support for
female talent such as career guidance and thought leadership forums.



 



The festival brings together Michelin-starred Cheffe Julia Komp (Germany), Michelin-starred Cheffe Flora Mikula (France), Michelin-starred Cheffe Mar?a Jos? San Rom?n (Spain), Celebrity Cheffe Anne-Cecile Degenne from
Raffles & Fairmont Makati (France), Celebrity

Celebrity Cheffe Georgiana Viou
(France) and Celebrity Cheffe Angela
Brown
who heads the culinary brigade at Raffles Grand Hotel d’ Angkor (United
Kingdom - Australia).



 



The highlight of the culinary festival will be the Cheffes
Battle & Gala Dinner
held on Saturday 19th October 2019
in the Diamond Hall of Sofitel Saigon Plaza. All Cheffes will lead teams of local
female talents to prepare the main course for 120 guests using ingredients from
a secret box, complementing the four other courses crafted by the hotel’s Executive Chef Stephane
Leforestier.
The Cheffes battle will be judged by Ms. Nguyen Phi Van
(Chairwoman of Saigon Innovation Hub and Vietnam Angel Network), Ms. Duong Thu
Huong (CEO of Forbes Vietnam) among other successful women from various
industries in Vietnam.



 



High Tea at Boudoir Lounge is the latest addition to the festival, with a collection of sweet
treats prepared by celebrity
pastry-cheffe Keiko Nagae
from Japan. The afternoon tea is available from
16th-18th October with seatings between 3pm to 6pm.



 



The festival will end on Vietnamese Women’s Day on
20th October with an All Star Cheffes Brunch and Buffet Dinner at Mezz Restaurant, as
well as an intimate Dinner at L’Olivier
Restaurant
in the evening.

connoisseurs in Ho Chi Minh City. The gathering of Michelin-starred Cheffes and

art-de-vivre to offer the best French cuisine and culture in the heart of the

said Olivier Revy, General
