A Celebration of Food & Wine on Sept. 6

At this new event, seven top Provence restaurants and at least 13 wine and Champagne houses will be serving up some of their finest flavors in the fabulous setting of the Théâtre Antique d'Orange. The Festival des Chefs is Friday, September 6th starting at 7 pm, and tickets are 32€ per person. Roughly 700 people are expected and ticket sales will be capped at 1,000. Your list of chefs and dishes will be marked at at each station...so everyone will get to taste everything. To purchase tickets, call 06 71 32 13 72 or 06 71 32 12 81. You can also buy tickets at the participating restaurants (listed on the poster above; you can click it to enlarge) and at the Tourist Office of Orange. Or you can email amitiegourmande2013@gmail.com but you must reserve in advance. If you've never visited the Théâtre Antique, this is a great chance to experience it; it's a UNESCO World Heritage site and it's considered the best preserved Roman theater in all of Europe. See you there!


  1. This event sounds fabulous! I am in the US now but will be in Orange on Sept 6. Can I purchase tickets in the US online before I leave for Europe? Does anyone know of Any other events in Provence during that time ? Merci!!

    1. Hi Patti,
      You could try calling the two numbers to order by phone...or just wait and get tix at the Tourist Office when you arrive. I've asked if it's possible to buy tickets at the event itself and will post the reply when I get it.

  2. Wish we could be there. Have fond memories of visiting the theater on a late September morning as the mistral began to sweep in. What a great venue for this event. Would love to see the Forum participate.

  3. Dear Julie, thank you so much! I'm looking forward to it!
    I'm in Cannes right now, and planned visiting the Luberon villages the first week in September. This festival will be the highlight of our visit!
    Thank you for creating the awareness of it; without your blog I would not have heard of it:-)
    It's always a pleasure to read your posts!
    Have a great week!

  4. We're also going to try to get tickets. Thanks so much for posting about this, Julie! We'll be in Avignon (1 wk in Kelly's apt & 1 wk in his villa) and are thrilled!
