Exhibition 2023

Festive delicacies

From the galette des Rois to the thirteen desserts

It’s winter, the days are short, it’s grey and cold, but the holiday season brings its share of compensating sweets
The kitchens are filled with the scent of spices and baking cakes. In many regions, Christmas, Epiphany … have their dedicated recipes. Bredele, gingerbread, kouglofs … so many delicacies that use moulds, cookie cutters, specific objects.
As for the santons, they are inseparable from the thirteen desserts. And the beans, so various that they are the joy of collectors, are nestled in the frangipane of the galettes des Rois.
On the occasion of its 2023 exhibition, the Regional Tableware House honours these festive objects and publishes a charm.

Guestbook: excerpts

Every year, a guestbook is made available to visitors wishing to share their impressions.
We have leafed through it and selected a few. Proof of the exhibition’s success and interest,
a second guestbook had to be opened.

  •  An extraordinary exhibition. A must for Burgundians and others who don’t know it.
    Well done to the person who welcomed us.

  • An exhibition just as magnificent as the previous ones. But what a staging of so many small subjects. A journey through time, space and the imagination. Well done.

  • This exhibition deserves to be seen and admired, and we must share and talk about the work involved in bringing it to life and presenting it. Thanks to all the organizers.
    Congratulations

  • What a pleasure, what hard work, we’re in admiration!
    Bravo, you have to come back several times to appreciate it.

  • From Christmas to Epiphany, santons, and above all fava beans, naïve, clever, simple, rich, original, surprising, severe, funny, universal…
    Well done to Éveline and the Arts de la table team. But how do they do it?
    Amazed and perplexed.

  • Beans like so many little jewels presented with taste and creativity in a place that has kept its soul.
    Well done to the whole team.

  • A stunning exhibition of quality and originality.
