3rd Edition of Split Gourmet Expo to be Held on Riva Next Weekend

Daniela Rogulj

October 4, 2019 – Split Gourmet Expo, an exhibition of Split restaurants, taverns, and hotels, will be held for the third time on the city’s famous waterfront promenade – the Riva. 

Namely, Split Gourmet Expo is a manifestation that brings together an exhibition of dishes and gastronomy from Split’s catering establishments, a competition, promotion through the media, and a special bilingual publication on the participants and dishes themselves.

Exhibition tables will be set up on the waterfront, where three items (cold appetizer, main course, and dessert) will be on display either on trays or plates. And the best part? All menu items will be free to taste by the visitors of the event after the judge’s evaluation has been carried out.

The taste, appearance, and originality of the dishes will be judged by a jury of eminent chefs and experts in gastronomy. 

The Split Gourmet Expo will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 10 am to 2 pm. It is a wonderful way to enjoy some of Split’s best restaurants and the creative concoctions they’ve crafted to win!
