Culinary highlights at Baselworld 

From take-away to snack bars and Michelin-starred cuisine, the culinary offerings at this year's Baselworld are as numerous as they are varied. An extensive selection for every taste, from sandwiches and poké bowls to sausage grill and Italian cuisine, is available in almost every hall and also on Exhibition Square.

Incidentally: the concepts and menus at two of the restaurants were created by two gourmet chefs and one Maître d’hôtel from the Glion Institute of Higher Education. All three are present at Baselworld and will be pleased to make your acquaintance. 

Look forward to outstanding culinary experiences at Baselworld – and join us on a culinary tour of the halls!
