Born from the inspiration of members of the “Association Outaouaise des Professionnels des Métiers de Bouche (AOPMB)”, made of professional of the culinary industry, the first Rendez-vous des saveurs de l’Outaouais is held in 1997.
Since its very first edition, this delicious event has made a point of bringing together top chefs and industry professionals, in addition to showcasing some of our best local farmers and producers.
Traditionally held at the end of September at the Gatineau City Hall (Maison du Citoyen), the Rendez-vous des saveurs is reinventing itself in 2009. After 12 successful editions, the AOPMB decided it was time to trust a new team to manage its upcoming editions. Under to direction of new President, Claude Hamelin, the event is moving to the better equipped and sumptuous new site at the Casino du Lac-Leamy’s Theatre.
This wonderful new site will give the event more space to welcome exhibitors, better facilities for chefs to work in and better development opportunities.
With its unique Gourmet Urban Market concept and a great decor, organizers want to make the Rendez-vous des saveurs Casino Lac-Leamy one of the best wine and food show in the country!
