La Route du Goût (The Road to Taste) – 3rd Organic Festival
La Route du Goût (The Road to Taste) will take place in Monaco for the 3rd consecutive year, from 12 to 14 October, on the Quai Antoine 1er. This major annual event is organised by the Bio Chef Global Spirit Association and presided over by Michelin-starred organic chef Paolo Sari from the Monte-Carlo Beach, with the aim of introducing the public to local, seasonal organic gastronomy.
For four days, chefs, producers, those involved in the organic movement, and the Principality's major institutions will offer fun, flavourful activities.
Workshops, cookery shows, ecological competitions and tastings will be the main focus of this festival, of which Riva, the Société des Bains de Mer and Monaco Tourist and Convention Authority are partners. New this year is a floating village with a vegetable garden and organic producers, who will be offering their products.
This event is free and open to all. It also encompasses the concepts of health, well-being and respect for the environment, and aims in particular to raise awareness among the younger generation.
To this end, a gala dinner, to be held on Friday evening at the Deck, will be prepared by children, paired with chefs from the Principality. On Saturday evening, ten Michelin-starred chefs will prepare a gala dinner at the Vigie on the theme of "Chefs Love the Planet."
On Saturday afternoon, nine Michelin-starred chefs will prepare dishes aboard the legendary Riva boats.
The money raised from the Route du Goût will be used to equip the "Institut hôtelier et culinaire Biologique Moné et Paolo Sari," a training centre for the hotel trade and organic cuisine in Madagascar, and build a sports campus there.
