Everywhere you look, you’ll find something to do with gastronomy – in the media, in the increasingly imaginative dishes available in our restaurants… as though the whole idea were something new.

In fact, it’s no more than a tradition in a constant state of renewal. It’s one that makes the most of France’s dynamism, the foods we produce, and what we do with them.

The Fête de la Gastronomie is first and foremost an event that celebrates generosity and conviviality. A time for people to get together.
