Prague Food Festival will be at a new venue

The long-running event will move to Vyšehrad

The Prague Food Festival will move to a new location for its 11th edition. The acclaimed culinary event will be at the national cultural monument at Vyšehrad on May 26 to 28.

But the idea remains the same. Visitors will have a chance to sample dishes from top restaurants from in and around Prague. There will also be beverages, of course, and a side program of workshops, cooking shows and lectures on healthy eating.

“Vyšehrad undoubtedly is one of our most important cultural monuments. Yet, many know it only from pictures, historical films or history lessons. Our festival, aside from excellent cuisine, always also features places of interest. Visitors will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the park, galleries and the baroque, medieval and Romanesque buildings and charming views of Prague and the Vltava River,” festival founder Pavel Maurer said.

The organizers pay attention to the selection of restaurants. Awaiting guests will be two types of barbecued piglet from Angusfarm, fusion cuisine from Aureole Fusion Restaurant & Lounge, European culinary trends from Bellevue, global vegetarian flavors from Etnosvět, modern Vietnamese cuisine from Gao Den, seasonal selections from Chateau Mcely's restaurant Piano Nobile, Italian specialties from Ristorante Il Giardino in NH Prague City hotel, Asian specialties from KOBE, international specialties from Le Grill in the Grand Mark Prague hotel, seafood from Mirellie, Austro-Hungarian era dishes from Monarchy, Mediterranean cuisine from Nostress, dishes complemented by exclusive cocktails from Prolog bar, delicious cuisine from U Emy Destinnové, Indian specialties from V Zátiší and culinary wellness presented by Spices Restaurant & Bar. All dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients.

Bars and beverages will be represented by La Bodeguita del Medio and Hennessy Cognac Bar. There will be wines from Chateau Valtice, Vinařství B\V and Vinselekt Michlovský. Organic wines will come from Ekovin and imports from Bacchus. Sparkling wines will come from Bohemia Sekt and Veuve Clicquot. Lobkowicz Brewery will offer six times of beer, while De’Longhi will provide coffee and Perrier/Vittel will provide spring water. VitaJuwel will also be present.

There will also be offerings of pate from Husí játra, escargot from Barkona Snails, cheese from La Formaggeria Gran Moravia, delicacies from Rougette and Pâté du Chef, baked goods from Řemeslné Koláčkovy pekárny and health food from Hummus Princess. Chocolates and ice cream will come from Bon Bon, Swiss chocolate from Lindt and Italian-style ice cream from Crème de la Crème.

The national team of the Asociace Kuchařů a Cukrářů will present Baroque for all the senses. NBA player Tomáš Satoranský will sign autographs at their stand. Apetit magazine will host cooking lessons. Lobkowicz Brewery will also give lessons on tasting and pouring. There will also be a children's corner.

Tickets will go on sale from April 1 at for Kč 450, and be Kč 550 at the venue. The tickets include 10 Grands for purchasing food. The festival uses its own currency coupons. Kč 10 from each ticket will go to the Akshaya Patra Foundation, which provides Indian school children with meals.

The festival in recent years had been at the Royal Garden at Prague Castle, and before that was at Kampa. Security at Prague Castle has been increased recently, making the park more difficult for the public to access.
