Heritage on a Plate

Izmir 2021

After a 2-year forced pause, the first Délice Network Gathering will be held in Irmir, Turkey, a member of the network since 2015. To celebrate our first reunion and shared meals, what better place than Turkey, a country with an ancient and thriving food culture. A country where hospitality and food are so connected.


On the menu of this historical gathering: Food Heritage.

Our heritage is present in every part or our daily lives. It defines the way we communicate, the way we work and of course the way we eat. Food culture relies of course on local products, but also on how we behave around food; the social habits that surround a meal.

For visitors in Turkey, the quality of hospitality is directly linked to this heritage.

In all countries and cities, this amazing asset needs to be protected and used wisely to stay attractive. Thanks to our guest experts, our conference & discussions will help us figure out what defines our food heritage and how can we best leverage it.

During the 3-day program prepared by the Municipality of Izmir, Délice delegates will experience the diversity of Izmir's food scene. They will be meeting the men and women who dedicate their energy in preserving and promoting Aegean cuisine, with strong consideration for the ressources and the environment.

Time to meet again in Izmir!
