The Preuvenemint is the Netherlands’ largest annually recurring gastronomic event, held in the last week of August on Maastricht’s Vrijthof square and seeing its 28th edition this year. The name Preuvenemint is a contraction of the Maastricht words 'preuve' (taste) and 'evenemint' (event). Some 40 restaurants, caterers, and other parties will be offering a sample of various types of dishes and products, ranging from satay to goose liver, and accompanied - of course - by a glass of good wine or beer.
