Gourmet Memories

Our Gourmet Memories say something about us. We all have a rich store of these happy recollections. They connect our sense of taste, our family recipes and our culinary endeavours to our childhood, our journey, and the meals that have marked the best moments of our lives.

Our favourite dishes each have their story, often triggered by the tools we use to make them. The Cité de la gastronomie invites you to share these emotions here, to bring to life the pleasure and the smiles the images in this collection evoke, going back to the roots of your memories.

A precious heritage to share.

To share your Gourmet Memory is to become part of the Cité’s collection
