What’s on in Europe for foodies?

If you like to add culinary highlights to your holiday, and let’s face it most of us do, there are a number of events taking place in vibrant cities which will delight foodies. We’ve chosen two of the best for those looking to take a break during the run up to Christmas.


The Cologne ‘Eat and style’ food and drink exhibition made its debut in 2006 and over the last four years has become one of the biggest food festivals in Germany, with over 30,000 visitors joining in the fun.

This year it takes place from Friday the 4th to Sunday the 6th of November, with celebrity cooking shows and workshops where you can learn new recipes. There’s also a chance to sample some haute cuisine and fine wines and if you approve, which you’re sure to, buy the products. They’ll make original Christmas presents! Visit eat-and-style.de for further details.


Chocoholics won’t be able to say no to ‘Showcolate’which takes place from the 8th to the 11th of December in buzzing Naples. Chocolate manufacturers, dreamy Italian ice cream makers and top pastry chefs will all be there, so if you’re one of the many who has a sweet tooth, this is the place for you. Feel free to indulge in sampling the ‘food of the gods’ and purchase the luxury products on offer. Visit showcolate.it for further details.
