Düsseldorf – why Düsseldorf?

For the 12th time now, CHEF-SACHE in Düsseldorf is bringing top chefs to the stage

CHEF-SACHE’s success is the result of all the people involved: First-class chefs, established exhibitors, committed partners, an extensive network and experienced industry professionals. From its debut opening in 2008 to today, CHEF-SACHE has become one of the hottest gastro events in the calendar. Its continued success is thanks to everyone who shares a burning passion for cuisine and gastronomy.

So, for the 12th time now, the doors will open in Düsseldorf at the AREAL BÖHLER. In addition to gastronomy’s main event, the live symposium and exhibition, visitors can also get a good overview of the top gastronomy here. The Avantgarde Cuisine Festival also brings the gastronomic elite/industry giants together under one roof as the ideal networking and information platform. This event offers the highest-level networks in close proximity to creative star chefs, top speakers, visionaries and versatile exhibitors.

National and international stars and star chefs, top speakers and visionaries offer a first-class program: come along and see it for yourself!

Food trends, culinary and technological innovations. Be amazed by more than 130 established producers, manufacturers and partners from top gastronomy!

Another highlight of CHEF-SACHE is the Masterclass, which has been a fixture of the diverse exhibition area since 2017.

The SCHOOL OF WINE is the perfect master class for sommeliers, F&B managers, chefs and service industry employees with a great affinity for drink selection.

Cup tastings, master classes and aroma labyrinths; rediscover coffee, with its aroma and enchanting taste, in completely new, unique and surprising ways.

Network, Get-together, evening event and much more.
