Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 is celebrating French cuisine with the Good France 2019 dining experience! From March 19 to 23, Privé is serving an all things French menu. Renowned for its elegance and exquisiteness, “Gastronomic Meal of the French” is a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage that has prompted French chef Alain Ducasse and the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to launch Good France in 2015.
Good France is held worldwide every March to celebrate French gastronomy and has attracted participation from over 2,000 restaurants in 150 countries last year. In celebration of this global event, Privé at Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 is introducing the Good France set menu from 19 to 23 March.
With “socially responsible cuisine focusing on environmental protection” as the main theme, Privé’s Chef Bob has designed a five-course menu that serves organic vegetables from local suppliers and hormone-free seafood from sustainable fisheries. Having worked at various five-star hotels in China, Chef Bob has an impressive resume that includes supervising banquets for the South Asia Expo and Princess Sirindhorn of Thailand.
The “Good France” menu starts with hot goat cheese salad, which is prepared with cherry tomatoes and honey balsamic sauce, and French cold cut platter, which offers an assortment of sausages and coppa, jesus, and Bayonne ham. Next up is bouillabaisse fish soup–a Provençal specialty that combines the rich flavours of Bouillabaisse with prawns, scallops, and blue mussels. The main course is the crispy yet tender salmon fillet, perfectly complemented by truffle mashed potatoes. To finish off the meal, guests are treated to the chocolatey and gluten-free pave chocolate cake.
When: March 19–23, 2019
How much: “Good France” set menu – MOP $588 per person
