M.A.D Festival,Taste the Mediterranean

18 March 2016 @ 10 h 00 min - 20 March 2016 @ 18 h 00 min

2016 Monptellier MAD Festival, the healthy mediterranean culinary show

Montpellier Events, organizer of the Festival A Taste Mediterranean (M.A.D) originally planned at the Montpellier Exhibition Centre from March 18th till 20th, 2016, made the decision to shift the second edition of the Festival in 2017.

The Festival Taste The Mediterranean thus opts for a biennial rhythm that will foster the development of a more accomplished content. To achieve this goal, the organizers wanted more time to propose an event good enough to meet the visitors’ expectations and the talent of the Chefs and artisans attending the show.

Real tool for promoting Mediterranean knowledge and Mediterranean cuisine, the M.A.D Festival is an ambitious event that wants to emerge as a major culinary rendez-vous in southern France and in the Mediterranean basin. At its first edition in 2015, the festival had nearly 60 Chefs, 103 exhibitors and over 6,000 visitors. For its next edition in 2017, the MAD intends to retain the DNA of what made its success by focusing on interactivity with demos of chefs, taste and quality with stands of local products, and health with lectures by experts. To this, the organizers will bring even more dimension event with workshops for children, the organization of “battles” of chefs and culinary competitions … a real show for 3 days. The potential and legitimacy of such an event in Montpellier are particularly proven with the richness and diversity of local products, and excellence of the participating chefs. A promising event in which deeply believes Montpellier Events. The dates for the 2017 edition of the Festival M.A.D. will follow soon.
