GOÛT DE FRANCE 2017 AT L’APPART

A DINNER TO CELEBRATE FRENCH GASTRONOMY

L’Appart, the renowned Parisian-styled rooftop restaurant and bar at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, is delighted to be participating in Goût de France 2017.

For the third consecutive year, the international gastronomic event, Goût de France or Good France, will bring together more than 2,000 chefs on five continents to celebrate French cuisine. This year, the event will be held on 21 March, the first day of spring. Goût de France or Good France was initiated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and Chef Alain Ducasse as a celebration of French gastronomy and the art of living. Organized in the form of a dinner, it will honor the excellence of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and the values that it conveys: sharing, enjoyment, and respect for our peers, the planet, and the art of eating well.

In the words of Alain Ducasse, “French cuisine is the interpreter of a cuisine that has evolved towards lightness in harmony with its environment… The common point of Goût de France is generosity, sharing, and the love of what is beautiful and tastes good. It is a delightful interlude and an opportunity to celebrate French cuisine worldwide.”

At the stylish rooftop bar and restaurant, L’Appart, Chef Jérome Deconinck will embrace the philosophy of Goût de France 2017 with an exceptional menu of modern French cooking. Share in mouth-watering cuisine, unique cocktails and great wines while enjoying one the best views of the Bangkok skyline.

Our gifted French chef began his extraordinary culinary journey as apprentice to Michelin star chef, Georges Paccard at his restaurant, La Ciboulette in Annecy, France. Jerome was awarded “Best Apprentice of Haute Savoie 1996”, and selected for the “Best Apprentice in France” contest.

Chef Jérome went on to work as Chef de Partie in the Department of the French Prime Minister where he created the daily menus for the prime minister and his cabinet. The talented chef was also co-owner and Chef de Cuisine of the restaurant Fancy Feats in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The venue was voted one of the city’s top ten restaurants by Malaysian Tatler, and Chef Jérome won the “Award of Excellence for the Most Outstanding Festival Cuisine” during the Kuala Lumpur Gourmet Festival. The brilliant young chef’s impressive pedigree also includes a position as Chef de Cuisine at Le Pergolese at the Hilton Tokyo, sister restaurant of Meilleur Ouvrier de France Stephane Gaborieau’s one Michelin star restaurant in Paris.

With his remarkable knowledge of traditional French techniques and many years’ experience as an expatriate, Chef Jérome brings passion and a new vision to the tables of L’Appart.

Seated in the sophisticated surroundings of the Parisian-styled apartment of L’Appart, diners will enjoy a sublime 5-course set menu which will begin with a welcome dish of gougère with aged Comte cheese, followed by truffled vegetable macedoine with a lobster medallion.

Diners will also be served a choice of spring lamb navarin with rosemary jus or Britany cotriade with seabass and mussels, followed by mini blue cheese soufflé, and a tropical savarin with pina colada espuma.

Enjoy an intimate 5-course Goût de France Dinner for only THB 1,990++ per person.

Celebrate Goût de France 2017 with Chef Jérome at L’Appart and enjoy an unforgettable evening of traditional French gastronomy infused with modern creativity.

Advance reservations are recommended.

INTERNATIONAL MACARON DAY 2017

FOR THE LOVE OF SUMPTUOUS MACARONS
“MACARON DAY 2017”

Join us at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit on Monday 20 March from 3pm – 4pm as we celebrate “Macaron Day 2017”.

Started in France by Pierre Hermé, the man that Vogue called “the Picasso of Pastry”, Macaron Day is now celebrated around the world.

Pierre Hermé once said of these delightful little creations, “Macarons only weigh a few grams, but that’s enough to leave your senses quivering with pleasure. Their thin, crisp shell, slightly rounded shape, tempting colors and tender interiors draw devotees to devour them with their eyes and caress their smooth surfaces. Their flavors solicit the nose and, when one bites into that crisp shell, the ears tingle with pleasure and the palate is finally rewarded.”

To mark the occasion of “Macaron Day 2017” at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, the talented Pastry Chef Joffrey Jacob from our Parisian-style café, Le Macaron, has created an array of special macarons. Guests can buy a macaron shell at THB 20 net each or ‘buy 5, get 1 free’ to stick on a 1.5 metre high elephant located in the hotel lobby. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Elephant Foundation of Thailand. The charitable event is the perfect blend of Thai and French art and culture.

At Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit’s distinctly Parisian café, Le Macaron, guests can also enjoy our Macaron Special with 6 macarons of your choice for only THB 299++ or take home a box of 12 for only THB 599++ from 7 am – 11 pm only from 20 March – 20 April.

Guests are invited to join us at the “International Macaron Day 2017 Celebration” on Monday 20 March from 3pm – 4pm where they will enjoy our delightful pass-around macarons in many enticing flavors with free flow tea shakes.

Open daily from 7 am – 11 pm, Le Macaron serves morning coffees and smoothies to enjoy in air conditioned comfort or on the Parisian-style terrace. Temptations to accompany a menu of fine coffees and teas include exquisite French pâtisserie items, freshly baked breads, heavenly Viennoiserie, and our signature macarons, all complemented by friendly service from welcoming Sofitel Ambassadors. At Le Macaron, you can also rediscover the enduring tradition of Afternoon Tea or a decadent Champagne Afternoon Tea, served daily from 2pm – 5pm.

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road, Le Macaron is also ideal to pick up a light bite and a coffee to take away.
