This international culinary festival’s goal is to spread innovation in the food scene by discovering those in the cooking scene, bring new ideas and define new perspectives.
Omnivore runs from August 20 to 24 with two days of cooking demos, three Maudits Soupers, two Extra Soupers and one Omnivorious Party at the SAT.
Two dozen Quebec and international chefs, pastry chefs, barmen and brewers will offer their best, especially from a new and young cooking scene perspective. After Paris, Moscow and Shangai, Montreal’s edition is becoming a must-see event by bringing together over 1,500 professionals and amateurs.
“More than anywhere else in the world, Omnivore and Montreal are in love. The encounter of a festival and a city, intimate ties are being forged for close to five years,” says Luc Dubanchet, the Omnivore founder.
Here is a sneak peek and short description of the events:
