Along with restaurants in 150 countries, CHEFS is serving a delectable range of French dishes in tribute to Goût de France, a worldwide celebration of French cuisine, taking place from 19-25 March 2018. With a regular menu offering inspired by French cuisine, it is no surprise that CHEFS is participating in this year’s celebration of France’s distinct culinary heritage.
First launched in 2015, Goût de France (which means “Good France”) aims to boost the visibility of French cuisine across the world. Goût de France 2017 saw the participation of over 2,100 restaurants as well as 250,000 meals served to 8,000 guests. Local restaurant-goers are encouraged to partake in this intimate showcase of France’s superb food offerings, with CHEFS as the destination.
Respected Head Chef Jenny Ward, who admires French cuisine deeply, will bring CHEFS’s French menu to life for Goût de France 2018. According to her, all great techniques in food-making are linked to the basics of French cooking. Ward received tutelage from French chef Laurent Deslandes at Bizerca Bistro, gaining insight into a range of invaluable French culinary techniques.
During Goût de France week, CHEFS guests can experience a range of firm French favourites, such as beef tartare, herb-crusted sirloin, tarragon-and-lemon-basted chicken and creamy wood-roasted mussels. Dessert offerings include raspberry-and-dark-chocolate mille-feuille, cognac-glazed figs with vanilla ice cream and crème brûlée.
Visit CHEFS for lunch or dinner this week to try one of their French-inspired meals.
The kitchen opens from 12h00-15h00 for lunch and 17h30-20h30 for dinner. For the full menu, visit www.chefscapetown.co.za. Please note that CHEFS will be closed on 21 March 2018 for Human Rights Day.
