Message from the Goverment

Québec’s exquisite Capitale-Nationale

What better way to discover the region at its savoury best than through its gastronomy?

The Québec government is a proud partner of the 9th Festival Québec Exquis!, which is taking place in Québec City for 15 days.

The secret of its growing success hinges on the know-how of the participating artisans, producers, food processors, chefs and wine stewards, who know how to awaken the senses and showcase gastronomy from at home and abroad.

The festival is one of the flagship events that raise the profile of Québec City and the Québec biofood sector on the international scene. Its considerable renown attracts each year numerous passionate food lovers eager to make discoveries, in addition to enhancing the vigour and cultural vitality of the Capitale-Nationale region.

We pay tribute to the admirable efforts of the organizers, who offer us an opportunity to discover culinary delights.
