Diners Club France Patisserie Week 2024

"Diners Club France Patisserie Week 2024" will be held again this year from Monday, July 1 to Wednesday, July 31.

This year, the fourth year of the festival, a record 301 shops will participate.

Patissiers who took the stage at the press conference on June 5. In the center is the event's advisor, Yukiko Omori, a French pastry researcher.


This year's common theme is "Savarin. It is a traditional French pastry named in honor of Brillat-Savarin, a well-known French gastronome and author of "Mimi Raisan" ("Praise for Delicacies"). The shape is often ring-shaped (if not ring-shaped, it is sometimes called a "baba"), soaked in syrup for a moist texture, and topped with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, or other toppings. Rum or Armagnac is the standard for the syrup, but for summer, gin, wine, and Grand Marnier are also used. Each of the participating restaurants will create their own original "savarin" specially for this event and offer it for a limited time only.

In addition, this year's event will be based on the famous words of the gastronomic critic Briat-Savarin: "Tell me what you eat. In reference to the quote by gastronomic critic Briat-Savarin, "Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are," a "Sweets Quotes & Guessing Activity" project will be held in which pastry chefs and customers can participate. In addition, to help support the areas affected by the 2024 Noto Peninsula earthquake, participating stores are encouraged to actively use ingredients from Ishikawa and other Hokuriku regions.
