A four-day gastronomic trade show bringing together more than 8,000 professionals for live cooking shows, wine tastings and meals prepared as part of the Villeroy & Boch Culinary World Cup will kick off on Saturday. 

Held every four years, Expogast is a gastronomy and tableware exhibition which also hosts the 2022 Villeroy & Boch Culinary World Cup in which 75 teams from 55 countries will compete in a peerless feast for the senses. 

The event starts on 26 November at Luxexpo in Kirchberg and features a variety of presentations and activities.There will be professional conferences, live cooking shows, product demonstrations, and a 900 seat restaurant which will be serving up dishes prepared as part of the culinary world cup event. 

Visitors can also explore the latest trends in tableware, cutlery, utensils, and new innovations in food processing and decoration. This year, Expogast has invited experts in gelato-making to present new developments in ice cream technology. Events, conferences and workshops include a sake tasting session, a four-part seminar on wine and sparkling wine and various presentations on gastronomic culture in the Grand Duchy. There are also three workshops for children. 

Culinary World Cup

 National teams, hailing from France, Australia, Japan to Armenia will all perform in an effort to push culinary boundaries. 

Teams will prepare their chosen dishes throughout the day and will serve them at the Restaurant of Nations without ever knowing whether one of the 70 judges will try their meals. For guests, this means that every dish will be of the highest quality since every dish might potentially be judged for the World Cup.

Visitors can buy a standard ticket (without set menus) for €12 per person or a €35 ticket covers each day of the exhibition.
