Since 1989, La Semaine du Goût® has been (re)defining the art of French gastronomy and celebrating the country’s culinary heritage with domestic and international guests. This year, the event takes place between the 9th to the 15th of October.

The event aims to educate and transfer knowledge and experience about “taste” - or, in broader terms, France’s gastronomic heritage, practices, culture and so much more - to the public and in particular to its younger generation. Before it was christened the “Week of Taste”, it was also known as the Journée du Goût, or simply took form in many a wondrous cooking lessons, events in schools of cuisines, local markets, restaurants and many more. If you are in France this week, be sure to check out its official programme guide. With 343 events to choose from, don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate the best of what French gastronomy has to offer!
