The Chedi Muscat has been selected to participate in ‘Gout de France’, also known as ‘Good France’ a global event during which one thousand selected chefs across the world prepare a special French dinner.
French-born executive chef at The Chedi Muscat, Sébastien Cassagnol will be leading the event with his culinary team at The Beach Restaurant on 21 March.
“It fills me with great pride to have been selected to share my heritage of French cuisine amongst our guests at The Chedi Muscat,” said Cassagnol.
“My inspiration for this menu combines my own personal gastronomic journey as well as the beautiful fresh local produce in The Sultanate of Oman.”
In accordance with the guidelines from Gout de France, the seven-course menu will consist of a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), and a chocolate dessert paired with French vintages and digestifs.
Highlights from the menu include local ingredients such as an entrée of Omani prawns served with vegetable pot-au-feu, followed by a main course that includes grilled tuna steak with ratatouille garnished with black olive foam.
The project is supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and well-known French chef, Alain Ducasse.
