The 2018 eat! Brussels, drink! BORDEAUX festival ended last night with positive results.
Starting on Thursday lunchtime, over 30 000 dishes and 90 000 tastings of Bordeaux wine
have been served at Brussels Park.
Established in 2012, the culinary year in Brussels, the eat! BRUSSELS festival has become
the unmissable gourmet event of the early autumn and the symbol of the culinary diversity of
the European capital.
For the fifth year running, the festival has consolidated its privileged partnership with Bordeaux Wines.
The 7th festival invited twenty iconic chefs from Brussels who took turns in showcasing their signature dish to the visitors. This year, the eat! Brussels, drink! Bordeaux festival provided an opportunity to meet several of Brussels’ best cheese-makers and pastry chefs. They acquainted visitors with new flavours from their original selection. Each day they took turns offering a tasting plate of their best artisanal products. From Thursday lunchtime to Sunday evening, over 30 000 dishes will have been sampled. A 20% increase in comparison with 2017.
The 50 Bordeaux winemakers and wine merchants have served nearly 90 000 tastings of Bordeaux wine, including sparkling, red, rosés and white wines. The Bordeaux Wine School has trained 1750 people over the 4 days. And an international village has showcased 11 regions, provinces and towns, all of which are partners of the Brussels Capital Region.
