Disciples Escoffier International Asia support the French Chamber Foundation
Disciples Escoffier International Asia held the YOUNG TALENTS ESCOFFIER 10th ANNIVERSARY at the Hong Kong Jockey Club on September 5. Maître Cuisinier de France, Mr Robert Fontana, Chairman of DEI Asia & Christian Bruhns, Executive Chef of the HKJC have revisited for their honourable guests iconic recipes from Mr Auguste Escoffier and crafted a unique 6-course dinner. This year, following August Escoffier concern in supporting Charity organizations, the Disciples Escoffier International Asia Gala Dinner organized Auctions in benefit to the French Chamber Foundation.
Henri Lamy, a French figurative painter and capoeirista who has exhibited his works in Paris, Beijing, Tokyo and Hong Kong participated in this beautiful evening. He contributed to the success of the auctions by donating two pieces of artwork he realized during the gala dinner. Henri Lamy on top of being a talented artist is also committed to help people in need. In September 2015, with Maïa d’Aboville, he opened The Taverne Gutenberg an art space in the city-centre of Lyon, France to make art accessible to everyone and support emerging artists.
