The inaugural Hoi An International Food Festival will take place from 14-20th March 2016. For one week Hoi An will be transformed into a truly international culinary destination. Twelve international chefs will bring their countries food to some of Hoi An’s best restaurants. The restaurants themselves will be themed to a specific country with decor, food, music and costume reflecting the participating country.
The chefs will be recreating their traditional dishes, showcasing the finest locally sourced Vietnamese ingredients. The festival will give visitors the opportunity to try food from around the world while enjoying a festival atmosphere. Over the coming years we hope to invite chefs from even more countries. For our first year we have already confirmed notable chefs from 12 countries.
The event launches on 13th March with a cocktail evening prior to the the first official day, and closes with an International Street party in Nguyen Thai Hoc and an Awards Ceremony taking place at An Hoi Sculpture Garden.
