In February 2017, at the occasion of the 375th anniversary of Montreal, Délice Network was chosen as main partner of the MONTREAL EN LUMIERE Festival, in partnership with TOURISME MONTREAL and SPECTRA.
While Lyon was the Guest City, the organizers decided to extend the invitation to all Délice cities, to celebrate the 10 years anniversary of the network and the anniversary of the city.
For each city, a chef was invited to participate to a pairing in a local restaurant. The invited chefs made the trip with their assistant and a journalist from a local media of their city. The pairing lasted for 4-5 evenings and was included within the official program of the Festival.
In total, 14 Délice Cities participated to the operation that led to great friendships among the chefs and interesting press coverage around the world. Never before have there been so many international chefs cooking in Montreal at the same time!
