Fez Culinary Festival 2011

Bad news for Fez food lovers, gourmet tourists, cooks, chefs and those who simply like to eat - this year the Fez Culinary Festival has been cancelled.

Last year was 5th edition of the festival and included, exhibitions, tastings, workshops and talkshops, demonstrations, a gala dinner with a fashion show, a film screening for children, a visit to the souk and even a concert. The woman at the helm was Director Danielle Cabanis, Professor of Law and Politics at Toulouse University. It was judged to be a great success.

News from the Director of the Spirit of Fez Foundation, Faouzi Skali, is that the next Culinary Festival will take place in 2012.

According to Gail Leonard from Fez Food, (pictured right)  "This is disappointing news for foodies and for Fez. It is a pity, as the Moroccan cuisine has so much to offer.

However, on the bright side, visitors can still come to Fez and experience all the culinary adventures that we offer. No matter if it is a cooking class or an olive oil and wine tasting excursion, all they have to do is get in touch with us and we can arrange anything!"
