The founder of the festival, Siham El Faydi, recalled that Moroccan gastronomy, “one of the best in the world”, constitutes “a sector in its own right and an industry which deserves to be developed and promoted at its fair value”.

“We seek to synergize,  the richness of our heritage and the quality of Moroccan chefs and professionals and their creativity in order to promote this sector which offers wide opportunities”, she added.

For his part, the general manager of Casablanca Events and Animation, Mohamed Jouahri, explained that the Gastronomic Festival “aspires to position the metropolis as a privileged destination in terms of culinary art”.

More than thirty national and world-renown chefs will participate for three days, to the delight of a passionate, gourmet audience or those who simply come to discover this secular art.
