Cyprus participated for the second time in the Goût de France (Taste of France) events, which took place in 150 countries.
The aim is to promote French gastronomy. Some 1,700 restaurants organised events all over the world, six of them in Cyprus.
According to a news release from the French Embassy in Nicosia, representatives of the embassy attended the dinners at the restaurants to honour the chefs` and the restaurants` engagement to promote the French gastronomy.
The Ambassador of France to Cyprus René Troccaz invited business people, diplomats, politicians, journalists and people engaged in cultural activities to taste French cuisine prepared by the chef of the Ambassador`s residence Αbdelmounaïm Benihoud.
The Ambassador, at the event, spoke of the link between gastronomy and diplomacy, since both fields are focused “on promoting contacts with people and demonstrating the will for understanding and exchanges.”
One of the chefs who participated in the events is well-known Cypriot Andreas Mavrommatis, who has been successfully operating restaurants in France for many years. (CNA)
