Good France Cambodia brings the French way of life to Phnom Penh

Starting today, Phnom Penh will be overflowing with a unique opportunity for Cambodians and expatriates to indulge in the French way of life through art exhibitions, movie shows, business events, conferences and debates during Good France Cambodia, a weeklong event to rejoice in France’s cultural contributions.

During the week Good France Cambodia will provide food tasting events at various locations that are open to the public at shops, hotels and restaurants across the capital.

Additionally, there will be live demonstrations to showcase the France’s cultural enrichment in the areas of fashion design, artistic creation and lifestyle.

Culminating next Thursday, 1,000 restaurants and French embassies on five continents are going to celebrate French gastronomy – a cuisine that is listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO – with a Goût de France or “Good France” dinner. In Phnom Penh, four restaurants will join in the festivities: Comme à la Maison, Le Bistrot de L’Institut Français, Restaurant Topaz and Van’s Restaurant. Each restaurant will provide a unique menu that will render homage to a vibrant, open and innovative cuisine with best ingredients from France and Cambodia, while remaining true to the French values of sharing, pleasure and reverence for good food.
