European Showcase “A Place at the Royal Table”
September 26 - September 27
“A Place at the Royal Table”, developed in 2018 by the Network of European Royal Residences will be closed by a European Showcase in September. This Showcase is organized in collaboration with the Palace of Coudenberg (Belgium) and will be held in the House of European History (Brussels, Belgium).
The aim of this Showcase is to tell the European history and the building of the European identity through the history of its cuisine, tastes and traditions that are the result of European exchanges.
Through scientific discussions about European culinary traditions and concrete study cases, this event will allow members to discuss their common experiences in the implementation of different activities developed for the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
