What's On in Burgundy 2014?
Dijon international gastronomy Fair
oct 31- Nov 11 2014
Parc des Expositions, 3 Boulevard de Champagne
Famed for its good food and wine, the town of Dijon will host the International Gastronomy Fair for the 84th year. Over 200,000 visitors are expected, with 580 exhibitors, making this one of the top ranking food fairs in France.
The fair offers a wide choice for the professional and amateur cook alike. New products in the field of food and wine as well as new trends in home and leisure will be on show.
Each year, a foreign country is invited to add a touch of the exotic to the scene. For 2014, Portugal is the guest country and in particular, the wines of the Douro region, shown above.
As Dijon prepares to become Cité International de la Gastronomie, the chefs gather at Le Quartier des Saveurs - there will be cookery demonstrations, competitions amongst the chefs and conferences on wine. For any foodie, it will be a delight for the senses, and the tum.
The Foire Internationale et Gastronomique de Dijon is open from 10.00 - 20.00 with late opening on some selected nights. Entry is 6.00 euros.
