Lausanne à Table Program 2023

May 4, 2023

It is that time of year again. Your foodie guide to the season’s coming events with Lausanne à Table launched today at noon! Why is this such an important occasion, you might ask? Well, many of these events sell out well in advance. Take our seasoned advice: Book it NOW if you see something that tickles your “gourmandise” fancy.

Lausanne à Table has over 200 members and since 2014 has been connecting local artisans with its inhabitants through the experience of food, beverage, music, and some of the most festive gatherings we’ve ever attended. The non-profit organization’s mission is defined by a depth in taste, curious discovery, and a culinary scene that is as hyper-localized as possible. Think farm-to-table taken to an entirely new level.

From workshops for kids and adults to dinners in some of the city’s most illustrious landmarks, Lausanne à Table has over 50 amazing events planned for the coming year.  We can guarantee that you’ll have an agenda full of what truly are Lausanne’s most delectable offerings. Here’s a short list of a few of the events that we are most looking forward to this year.

Miam Festival 5th edition: Sat 27 May- Mon 29 May

Last year was a record one for this festival that transformed Place de Riponne into an international food hall. Taking place the weekend of Pentecote, this year’s event will have 27 stands representing countries from around the world with added delicacies from Korea, Croatia, and Sri Lanka.

La Fête des Vigneronnes: Friday 9 June

The women winemakers of our region are highlighted in this early summer neighborhood gathering on the patio at Café de Grancy. Some of our most lauded women who have only been allowed to make wine since 2008 gather and share their noble creations from the “Terroir” Romandie. Expect to see the likes of some of our favorites including Catherine Cruchon Griggs, Laura Paccot, and Swiss Winemaking icon Marie-Therese Chappaz at this cozy event.

Les Tables Ephémères err on being more expensive but for good reason. Expect dinner inside some of the city’s most symbolic locations (i.e. Cathedral de Lausanne, the Chateau Saint-Maire, Hotel de Ville, and Palais de Rumine to name a few.) Paired with the culinary expressions of some of Lausanne’s most impressive chefs, these will be memorable soirées.

We’re also excited about the annual return of many local favorites, including the “Brunch Geant” in Ouchy, the Autumn Fondue in Parc de Valency, and the 3rd annual Malakoff Championnat du monde at Espace Amaretto. But also new features like “Le Palais Gourmand”, a museum and food and wine pairing at Palais du Rumine, and “Honey Where are My Fries” where, you guessed it, a festival of “frites” will be held in an old french-fry factory complete with DJ’s and a costume party (come as your favorite fry!? WTH, but we LOVE it).
