The 23rd edition of “Monte-Carlo Gastronomy“, organized by Caroli Com – Caroli Group, will open its doors from 23 to 26 November, at the Marquee of Monaco for tasty discoveries and an irresistible invitation to the pleasures of gluttony. This show of French and foreign gastronomy will offer gourmets, epicureans, curious and amateurs a return to authentic tastes and local produce.
For many years, this attractive show has built its success not only on the quality of the products presented from a rigorous selection of exhibitors, but also on the diversity and importance of its animations.
Many culinary demonstrations will be performed every day by the great chefs of Monaco and the Côte d’Azur, revealing to visitors the secret of their prestigious recipes. They will be broadcast live on the Facebook page of the show.
As every year, several important associations will actively participate in the show: Monaco Taste and Flavors, Slow Food Monaco Riviera Côte d’Azur, the Association of Masters of Italian and French Hotels, the Monegasque Association of Sommeliers, the Association of Monegasque hotel industry, the National Academy of Cuisine of Nice.
