French GourMay to celebrate Midi-Pyrénées

This year’s “Le French GourMay” in Hong Kong and Macau will be focusing on the wine and gastronomy of France’s Midi-Pyrénées.

Taking place within the wider span of the annual celebration of French culture in the SARs known as  “Le French May”, the gastronomic salute to the south-west of the country will see restaurants and importers making use of foie gras, Roquefort, Cahors and Armagnac throughout the month.

Spanning the on- and off-trades, from 1 to 31 May a number of Michelin-starred restaurants including Amber, Petrus, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Spoon by Alain Ducasse and The Golden Leaf will be offering Midi- Pyrénées-themed “feasts”.

A further 60 bars and restaurants from fine dining venues such as Caprice, On Dining Kitchen, La Saison and La Parole to more casual French dining establishments such as; Bistro du Vin, Le Blanc, Nocturne, Les Fils à Maman, Métropolitain and Plat du Jour will also be taking part.

There will also be partnerships with retail outlets such as La Cabane, Ginsberg+Chan, Rare and Fine Wines, Winebeast and Sens Wine Cellar while AWSEC, Ecole du Vin de France and L’Atelier du Goût among others will be running specialised workshops throughout the month.

The month-long event will kick off with a three-day party from 1-3 May at PMQ where the food and wine of the south-west will play a central role, while there will be a two-day street market held in Stanley from 16-17 May and a French “Food and Wine Walk” in Tsim Sha Tsui on 9 May.

This year will mark the fifteenth anniversary of Le French May in Asia and the seventh anniversary of Le French GourMay. Last year’s focus region was the Rhône and the year before that was Burgundy.
