Savour French cuisine at Chedi Muscat culinary event

MUSCAT: French gastronomy will be celebrated at The Chedi Muscat as it announced taking part in the culinary event “Gout de France” also known as “Good France”.
The global event will simultaneously take place on March 21, 2016, over five continents with the participation of 1,000 selected chefs.
The project is supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development as well as celebrated French chef, Alain Ducasse. Chefs of every kind will celebrate the excellence and diversity of French cuisine on the same evening as they delight diners with a specially crafted menu.
French-born Executive Chef at The Chedi Muscat Sébastien Cassagnol will be leading the event with his expert culinary team at the award-wining The Beach Restaurant, with a menu that is sure to please the palate.
Born in the south of France and raised in a typically traditional French culinary background, Cassagnol’s cooking philosophy and style has evolved over 16 years of international experience, having worked in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Lebanon, and Indonesia, to name a few. In accordance with the guidelines from “Gout de France,” the menu will comprise a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), and a chocolate dessert, all paired with French vintages and digestifs.
Highlights from the French-inspired menu include local ingredients such as an entrée of Omani prawns served with vegetable pot-au-feu, followed by a main course that includes grilled tuna steak with ratatouille garnished with black
olive foam.
“It fills me with great pride to have been selected to share my heritage of French cuisine with our guests at The Chedi Muscat. My inspiration for this menu combines my own personal gastronomic journey as well as the beautiful fresh local produce in Oman” says Executive Chef Cassagnol.
The seven-course menu includes paired vintages, which will be served exclusively for one night only at The Beach Restaurant on March 21, 2016. The menu is priced at OMR89 (plus applicable taxes) per person. For reservations please contact (968) 24 52 44 00 or [email protected]
