“No pleasure is ephemeral, because the impression it leaves behind is lasting.” Who said that? Once again, it was good old Goethe. And he was probably referring to culinary highlights such as those you’ll find at the annual Fine Food Days in Cologne. Here, Michelin-starred and other top chefs from every part of Cologne and its surrounding region spend several days showing off their entire gourmet repertoire of fine dining and drinking, accompanied by a special programme.
Cologne’s culinary festival, which is only a few years old, deliberately aspires to soar above conventional gourmet events by offering a festival format that is innovative and top-class.
