The Cité Internationale de la Gastronomie has opened this month of October 2019 its doors in the heart of the Quatre Rang dome of the Lyon Grand Hôtel-Dieu.
With four floors and 4,000m2 extension, this renowned institution from the French city of Lyon, is furnished with an active and dynamic kitchen made out of Dekton® by Cosentino, the innovative and resistant ultra-compact surface for architecture and design. The Dekton® colour Baltic, which represents a deep and matt saturated blue, inspired in the most daring depths of the sea, has been used in the countertop, creating a drastic contrast with the shiny white of Dekton Xgloss Halo hue used in the cladding. In total, for the creation of this kitchen designed by architect Carlos Salazar (Salazar Arquitectos Studio) 22 slabs of the ultra-compact surface Dekton® were used: 19 s Dekton® Baltic slabs in 20mm thickness, and 3 Dekton® Halo slabs in 8mm thickness. Around the kitchen a full programme emerges to experience all aspects of gastronomy, nutrition and health with food tastings, workshops, conferences, and live cooking shows by chefs who will visit the space. The agenda will evolve throughout the seasons, offering the visitor to review their experience from different angles, feeding reflection about a healthy gastronomy and encouraging know-how and related professions. The Cité Internationale de la Gastronomie will also be a point of reference for all the industry professionals with the organization of meetings, trainings and networking among restaurant businesses and local producers. This collaboration between the Cité Internationale de la Gastronomie and Cosentinio was made possible thanks to MagmaCultura.
