The event, co-organized by InterContinental Hotels Groups (IHG) and Hong Kong Elite Champ Group, is part of a project to launch a series of Vietnamese restaurants in 15 IHG hotels across China.
During the week, four Vietnamese chefs will introduce specialties of three regions (north, central and south) to Chinese visitors.
Simon Pang, General Director of Elite Champ Group, said that he has been involved in trading Vietnamese farm produce and food, and wants to set up two or three Vietnamese restaurants in each Chinese city.
Hoang Ngoc Bao, an official of the Vietnamese General Consulate in Guangzhou, said that many restaurants in China serve Vietnamese food, but none of them offer a real taste of Vietnamese specialties. Guangdong shares many cultural similarities with Vietnam, so a lot of people in the Chinese province love Vietnamese food, he added.
