Workshop in Luxembourg: "Les oranges en fête"

Microtarians has organized the  Orange Festival in the MicroAtelier, in Luxembourg on the Kirchberg, in co-operation with the FairItalia association and the European Prima project MEDIET4ALL.


The Orange Festival: Celebrating Citrus Delights

The MicroAtelier in Luxembourg’s Kirchberg area was abuzz with excitement as Microtarians hosted the Orange Festival on the 9th of  December 2023, in collaboration with FairItalia and the European Prima project MEDIET4ALL.

The workshop focused on highlighting the significance of citrus fruits in our diet and exploring both ancient and modern preservation techniques.

Sourcing oranges directly from a small agriturismo in Sicily, Microtarians has curated a delightful selection of products for festival-goers to enjoy, including Sicilian cheese, pistachio cream, and olive oil. Families joined in the fun with workshops and games for the children, while renowned nutritionist and chef Lucie Bonfiglioli treated everyone to a mouthwatering vegetarian fennel and orange paella during a captivating show cooking session.
