The fifth Fête de la Gastronomie will be held this September on 25th, 26th and 27th throughout France.

Sponsored by the government in order to support French gastronomie, this year’s theme is "créativité et audace" (creativity and daring). Carole Delga, Secretary of State for Commerce, says This theme appeals to the imagination of all French. The creativity and daring of french chefs and craftsmen from all areas deserves to be appreciated by the French and international general public.
