March 2022

Spring is right around the corner...

The International Day of Happiness takes place on March 20th each year and coincides with the arrival of spring.
A happy coincidence because obviously spring is one of the happiest seasons!
And it is in that same joyful spirit that Disciples Escoffier from all around the world gathered, as usual, to share convivial moments.

Following the phenomenal success of the first Epicure’s dinner of this young delegation, a second dinner was organized to satisfy all those who were not able to attend the worldwide event.

Chef Gilles Marx, President of the Indonesian delegation and Resident Chef of the Amuz Gourmet restaurant organized this splendid dinner in collaboration with Chef Richard Gillet, Vice-President of the Asia Pacific Zone and Chef Louis Tanuhadi, Director and Executive Pastry Chef of APCA Indonesia.
