Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi will host the second “Metropole Culinary Stars” from October 6 to 13, with leading culinary stars from around the world including those with a total of eight Michelin stars.

The eight-day culinary extravaganza, which follows last year’s highly successful inaugural event, will feature 18 internationally-renowned chefs who will collaborate on a series of extraordinary and memorable meals at the Metropole Hanoi.

“Metropole Culinary Stars 2019 promises to be a truly remarkable event, as we bring together some of the world’s most celebrated chefs in a city whose culinary tradition is undisputed,” said Mr. William Haandrikman, the Metropole Hanoi’s General Manager.

Michelin-starred chefs participating in this year’s event include Jacques Pourcel (a three Michelin-star chef at Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier, France), David Rathgeber (the chef-owner of the Michelin-starred L’Assiette, one of Paris’ most sought-after bistros), Hervé Rodriguez (chef-owner of the Michelin-starred MaSa restaurant in Paris), Jean-Baptiste Natali (the youngest chef in France to earn a Michelin star when he was awarded one in 2002 at the age of 27), Raoul Meuwese (Chef de Cuisine at the Michelin-starred Bridges at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam), and Michael Dyllong (head chef of the Michelin-starred Palmgarden in Dortmund, Germany).

The event will also spotlight other global culinary luminaries, including Dutch celebrities’ private chef (René van Empelen), a former winner of Master Chef of France (Didier Corlou), a scion of a cheese-making family that’s been in the business since 1880 (Patrice Marchand), the maître-chocolatier of the world’s longest-established chocolatier (StéphaneBonnat), an author of 14 renowned cookbooks (Alain Caron), one of Asia’s top female chefs, according to the Michelin Guide (Vanessa Huang), the Master Baker of France (Bruno Dinel), and pastry master (Fabrice Danniel).

Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi’s Executive Chef Paul Smart and his culinary team Aurélien Houguet, Nguyen Thanh Van, and Raphael Kinimo will also bring their expertise to the much-anticipated event.
