From June 6 to October 13, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum in Montreal will host an exhibition devoted to the gastronomic meal of the French, as recognised by UNESCO in 2010. Called “Dinner is served! The story of French cuisine”, the exhibition is a voyage of discovery into different facets of the French meal from antiquity to the present day.
Four seasons, four regions, four chefs and their favourite producers: that’s the idea behind the exhibition "Change the climate on your plate!". This educational travelling exhibition can be seen at the Orangerie in the Jardin du Luxembourg between July 25 and August 5 2019.
The official foundation stone laying ceremony for the Cité de la gastronomie et du vin de Dijon took place on July 4. The venue is due to be completed at the end of 2021 after two years of building work.

From June 15 to 23 the French capital was the setting for “Paris bien dans son assiette” (“Paris eats well”), a series of events and conferences marking the first anniversary of the city’s sustainable food strategy. Organised by the city authorities, it brought together food and catering professionals with associations and the general public.
