First outdoor Vietnamese cuisine festival held in Paris

A Vietnamese cuisine festival was hosted by the Association of Vietnamese People in Paris on June 19. It was the first Vietnamese cuisine festival held outdoor in Paris, shortly after local authorities eased COVID-19-induced restrictions.


Featuring some 25 Vietnamese associations and businesses in France, for example, Banh Kit, Ba noi, Bibol, Thanh Binh Jeune, Tra Art, Tram Tram, and France Plumfoot, the event attracted attention of Parisans and Vietnamese expats living in the European country.

Visitors were provided a chance to have a taste of Vietnamese iconic dishes, such as beef noodle salad, fresh spring rolls, and fried spring rolls, and enjoy temporary art performances by Vietnamese artists.

Visitors were also introduced Vietnamese fresh lychees at the event. The lychees are from the first shipment of the fruit from Vietnam to France./.
