The Foire Gourmande of ATNEO gets a special guest in 2019

Celebrated chef Stefano Faita will be the official special guest for the 18th edition of the gourmet event, which is slated to take place in Ville-Marie on August 16th, 17th and 18th.

The Foire Gourmande of Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Northeastern Ontario is honoured to welcome this renowned chef.


For me, the idea of hopping in the car and gobbling up the kilometres of highway that will take me to your festival, licking my lips over the experiences we’ll share, makes me very happy! Seeing the terrain change as I drive and anticipating this opportunity to learn more about the people in your region thanks to the food you produce, that’s the epitome of joy! On that note, I’ll see you soon! When we’re together, the more of us we’ll be! It’s often around the table that we really get to know each other! And since I’ve often been in your neck of the woods, I know you’ll make me feel right at home! It’s all good!''
