Munich Airport is thrilled with the success of its second culinary festival “Taste & Style,” hosted from June 15-18, 2017 at the Munich Airport Center. The four-day event – a full day longer than the inaugural edition – attracted approximately 150.000 visitors, who sampled the latest gourmet trends and watched celebrity chefs in action, showing off their skills and sharing their secrets. Foodies flocked to a total of 35 stands and food trucks offering regional and international specialties. This year’s featured theme was Spanish tapas, with chefs’ imaginations running wild, pairing traditional Iberian ingredients with influences ranging from home-style Bavarian fare to much more exotic flavors. All of the creations were prepared fresh and handed over for immediate enjoyment. In the “Marketplace of Delights”, sustainable food businesses, start-ups and small, artisanal operations offered their delicacies.
On “World Tapas Day” on June 15th, the Basque chef Alejandro Cepeda presented his latest ideas for creating tapas and Basque pintxos as tasty appetizers to inspire a holiday feeling at home. Every evening, popular live acts provided the perfect musical backdrop to complement the culinary experience. The gourmet event Taste & Style was hosted by Munich Airport in cooperation with eat&STYLE – Germany’s biggest food festival.
