This year’s theme highlights “young cuisine”, as noted by founder Luc Dubanchet.

However, this year’s festival focuses on the new generation of culinary talent whose prowess is fortified year after year—as exemplified by some of their popular establishments. Masterclasses The Masterclasses are one of the most highly anticipated events of the festival.
