Mindjî is the name chosen for the first European festival of gastronomy to be held at the Citadel in Namur. The event is organised by Generation W, a collective of chefs from Wallonia (the W representing the French speaking part of Belgium – Wallonia).
The name mindjî, means to eat in the Wallonia. Two dozen chefs coming from around 20 different countries and regions of Europe will join chefs from Generation W and from Belgium.
They will be accompanied by their artisanal suppliers and their favourite produce. Dozens of Michelin starred chefs will be taking part allowing visitors the chance to discover their cuisine through tastings, conferences and also demonstrations.
The Wallonia Food Festival & Symposium will take place between 4th and 7th June in Namur and is organised by Generation W together with Culinaria Agency.
Generation W is the brainchild of 10 Walloon chefs including the most representative chef of the region Sang-Hoon Degeimbre.
It’s aim is to promote the common common heritage by looking towards the future, building dialogue and interactions with all the sectors of the economy.
Stay tuned. This promises to be a great event.
