The Monte-Carlo Gastronomie event takes place from Friday, November 24, until Monday, November 27, in the Fontvieille Chapiteau. Now in its 22nd year, and growing annually, the food fair attracts a wide range of exhibitors, mainly from France and Italy.

Monaco is represented by L’Orangerie, the local company that produces liqueur from the Principality’s own oranges; Gold Energy, which specialises in luxury energy drinks; Lato Fields Estate, specialists in virgin olive oil; La Bodeguita Monaco, and Zepter International. From further afield come exhibitors from Slovakia, Morocco and Vietnam.

Needless to say, wine tastings form an important part of the festival, as do demonstrations of cooking skills, and there is daily draw for prizes at stake for exhibitors and visitors alike.

Minsiter of State Serge Telle inaugurates proceedings at 11 am on Friday, and the four-day food feast ends with a draw for a Gourmand’s Prize at 5:30 pm on Monday.

Entrance is a very modest €5, and children under 12 are admitted free of charge. The event is open daily 10 am to 10 pm, except for the last day, Monday, when it closes at 7 pm.

As an added incentive, entrance is free from noon until 2 pm and from 7 pm to 10 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
