MESSAGE BY THE CONSULATE GENERAL OF FRANCE IN HONG KONG AND MACAU
French GourMay Food & Wine Festival, organized by Business France and in partnership with French May Arts Festival and Consulate of France in Hong Kong & Macau, has been one of the largest French gourmet festivals in Asia since its inception in 2009.
France is the first country to have its gastronomy placed on UNESCO’s list of the world's intangible heritages. Every year in May, we deliver the finest wines and delicacies from a designated region of France to Hong Kong and Macau for a whole month.
Despite the challenging situation, French GourMay embraces its 12th edition this year. As French three Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno said, “Gastronomy has become global, and it is important that French cuisine is carried by chefs”. We would like to thank and support our partners over the years; to invite everyone to share “joie de vivre” (Joy of Life) by exploring French gastronomic heritages through the lens of surrealism with our extensive network of partners (restaurants, retail shops, importers and educational institutes in Hong Kong and Macau.
In addition, the authentic French Traditional Gourmet Market will be back in Nina Tower of the bustling Tsuen Wan district from May 28 – 30. Join us to enjoy performances curated by French May Arts Festival and shopping experience presented by French GourMay Food & Wine Festival.
A très bientôt! See you soon!
