Because it appeals to the five senses, can be shared and leaves room for discovery, food is also the best way to keep a good memory of this 52nd edition. This year, there's something for everyone, with proposals to remind you that you don't have to be a ventriloquist to know that your belly talks too.

Alliance des Chef-fe-s

For the first time, the Festival de la Cité brings together four Lausanne institutions committed to the same cause: respect for the terroir, the perpetuation of savoir-faire and the promotion of local, seasonal products.

Each is a member of the slow food movement and strives every day to apply its precepts.

Throughout the Festival, L'Alliance des Chef-fe-s will be offering a committed, local menu, showcasing local craftsmen and women by combining the worlds and influences of each chef-fe-s.


Opened a year ago. Luis, Nicolas and their team propose a six-step menu every evening, which evolves with the seasons. The cuisine is free and responsible, gastronomic and contemporary, but with no complexes.

DéCi, Comptoir Gourmand

Terroir, sharing, local produce and wine at Déci. Benjamin and Nathalie's comptoir gourmand has been working wonders for over a year, and is about to set up shop in the sub-Gare area.

Le Nabi

At the crossroads of artistic and culinary cultures, Le Nabi puts seasonality at the heart of its cuisine. Local products are magnified to the rhythm of a healthy, aesthetic and committed cuisine.


Laetitia and Céline, two sisters with two passions: cooking and the arts, which they express with talent through their creative, delicate pastries,
