On May 6-8 the City park of Dilijan (Tavush region) hosted a three-day gastronomic festival GASTROFEST, which was attended by more than 20 restaurateurs from different regions of Armenia. The event was held in the format of a city fair, where, in addition to tastings, live music concerts, dance master classes, and a gastronomic quest have been organized.
The participants of the festival presented their own concepts to the guests, a set of dishes and drinks that their region is famous for, as well as tell about their culinary traditions. As part of the gastronomic quest, guests were able to complete special tasks from chefs and receive prizes.
