Festive food and wine fair in Monaco

Food and wine lovers are in for a treat when the 9th Monte-Carlo Gastronomie comes to the Espace Fontvieille this weekend from Friday until Monday 29th.

This annual fair attracts some 150 exhibitors from all over Europe and every year one discovers something delectably new – be it a wine, a cheese, a brand of olive oil or a sweetmeat. It’s the perfect opportunity to acquire new recipes and festive tips from the chefs present and find original Christmas fare for your table.

Taste or buy what your palette desires! Also there will be the Slow Food sud-est / Monaco Association to encourage you to slow down while dining. You can park for just 2.50 Euro for the day (or get the number 5 or 6 bus). Entrance is free Friday and Monday, 5 Euro at the weekend for adults but free for under twelves. Open from 10am to 8pm. Tel: +377 97 98 50 00. There are still free tickets available for all Riviera Times readers. To receive your free tickets, call the Riviera Times on 04 93 27 60 00 or e-mail
