With gastronomic tasting experiences and wine samplings, the event promises a delightful exploration of French culinary heritage and its enduring influence.

Spanning from April 22nd to the end of April, the festival will feature the participation of around eight restaurants, including Delplace Restaurant by Pierre Delplace and Club Med represented by Adrien de Robillard, alongside other establishments such as La Belle Tortue, Hilton properties, Constance Ephelia, Story Seychelles, and Gou Notik.

Mrs. Bernadette Willemin, Director General of Destination Marketing, expressed Seychelles’ continued commitment to participating in Goût de France, emphasising this year’s significance in allowing local establishments to showcase their talents and contribute to the fusion of Creole and French cuisine, enriching Seychellois gastronomy.

Following the press conference, guests and members of the press enjoyed sampling dishes prepared by Mr. Ryan Maria, an instructor at the Seychelles Tourism Academy, and his students, which showcased the creative fusion of French and Creole culinary traditions, highlighting Seychellois gastronomy’s innovation.

Since its inception in 2015, this initiative, led by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs in collaboration with renowned chef Alain Ducasse, has been dedicated to highlighting France’s rich culinary heritage and introducing global audiences to the exceptional expertise of French cuisine.
