The Lille Grand Palais is a foodie oasis in early November. Food fair, Envies Culinaires is a chance to sample a mouth watering array of French and international food. Visitors can sample cider, wine and champagne and even learn new ways to decorate their dinning room tables for events.

The annual fair features gourmet food from hors d'oeuvres to desserts. The Produits Festifs panders to people hungering to fill their stomachs with snails, lobsters, and foie gras and Sucres for those with a sweet tooth who love nougat, waffles, caramel, and chocolate. The fair also has stands promoting Italian and Mexican cuisine. At the end of your feast of samples you can find yourself sipping your favourite tipple while you consider what to take home with you for your next dinner party.
