A taste of Tunisia
" A selection of Tunisian wines accompanied the meal "
“A taste of Tunisia” was the theme for the Bailliage of Yaoundé’s first meal of 2023.
On January 25th, the Bailliage welcomed its members and friends of the Chaîne to a symphony of flavours conjured up by the National Bailliage of Tunisia and the National Bailliage of Cameroon, with a gourmet dinner jointly organised by the Tunisian Embassy in Cameroon, the Hilton Hotel and the Bailliage of Yaoundé.
The “Le Pachy” restaurant was beautifully decorated, carrying on the theme of the magical New Year festivities that had only just come to an end.
Tunisian Chef Mounir El Arem, Conseiller Culinaire of the National Bailliage of Tunisia and owner of “Le Baroque” restaurant in Tunis, had made the journey to prepare a menu to delight the 40 or so people present. The event was attended by some prestigious guests and an impressive number of representatives from the diplomatic corps.
