Gastronomy has always been important in French culture. Since 1990, La Semaine du Goût ® (the Week of Taste), normally takes place in October to celebrate French gastronomic heritage with domestic and international guests. This year, the event is held between the 7 to 13 of October.
This event aims at transferring knowledge and experience about French gastronomy to the general public, especially the younger generation. Through school programs, tasting menus, workshops and cooking demonstration by renowned chefs, it favours not only the communication between the professionals and the public, it also helps to preserve the French culinary legacies. If you are in France this week, be sure to check out the official programme guide and seize this opportunity to explore the diversity of French cuisine!
