Presented as a gastronomic festival, Taste of Paris is much more than that: you come to eat the best of Parisian cuisine, during lunch hours (11:30am to 4pm), and dinner (7pm to 11:30pm). But that's not all!

Inside the ephemeral spot, facing the Eiffel Tower, stands reproduce the kitchens of the restaurants with their chefs and brigades... We're treated to live demonstrations by the great names in gastronomy, as well as a drinks program.

In fact, the show features a whole delegation dedicated to the beverages that accompany your meal. Fromchampagne and cocktailbars to beer, wine, coffee and water bars, you can meet a host of experts and their products, to complete your gastronomic visit.

Each dish costs between €6 and €12. To treat yourself, you'll need a prepaid card given to you at the entrance. The idea is then to take a dish and/or dessert, here and there, aided by the program that presents all the chefs' dishes, and enjoy them on a table or a table-top.

Our first piece of advice: choose the day you come. Yes, for a number of years now, Taste of Paris has offered a rotation of chefs. Depending on the day you choose, you'll meet different chefs: coming back to this festival several days means you'll have a unique experience every time you visit.

Next, set a small budget. Don't come empty-handed to Taste of Paris. In fact, note that you have to pay for the entrance AND the dishes you want to taste inside. As explained above, you'll need to credit a card at the entrance, in order to be able to order from the stands. To eat well and discover the various chefs' specialities, expect to pay at least between 25 and 40 euros per person, otherwise you'll be disappointed! Last but not least, arrive early and give priority to the stands you're most eager to try out, even if it means dividing up to get the best deal. Some restaurateurs are very successful, but it's all quite fluid.

And don't forget to take advantage of all these professional chefs to learn a few tricks of the trade! Amateurs looking to learn can book small-scale workshops with chefs (very popular), cooking classes and top-flight masterclasses.

Taste of Paris is also an opportunity to discover the great producers and artisans who have come from all over France to offer the quality raw materials needed for fine cuisine at stands between the restaurants. A beautiful market where you can pay with your prepaid festival card or cash (to be collected in advance).
