CULTURE KIOSQUE CYBERCHEF – A magazine filled with very interesting, thought-provoking food articles.

Culture Kiosque
Culture Kiosque is one of the longest-standing online guides to the arts. Truly pan-European, it has an eclectic mix of discussion on art, cuisine, archeology and jazz all in the same space, along with great images.

The Fifi Report 054 - "Chic Happens"

15 April 2010


It’s true, you can get all the latest tidbits of hot, culture news with The FiFi Report (in Globetrotter) but if you’re traveling and want more indepth information on where to find the best jazz, opera, theatre and exhibitions in the world, then I insist you log on here. It’s "The European Guide to Arts, Culture and Entertainment Worldwide". The design is a bit confusing, but it is full of information for culture vultures. Click on any section like Opera, Jazz, Klassic, or Art and Archeology, and there’s even a Cyberchef section (that I will scour for any hot recipes) with interviews with celebrity chefs such as Michel Roux. Hours of reading.

Ask T+L

Do you know of any Web sites for finding tickets to live concerts throughout Europe? —Alena Smirnov, Menlo Park, Calif.

The Travel Calendar at CultureKiosque.com, where international critics weigh in on everything from Vienna chamber concerts to London pop shows, is a good place to start, though you can’t book directly from the site.

When to go where
Sean Dodson
The Guardian Saturday August 25 2007

What's missing is a little culture. A site like Culture Kiosque (culturekiosque.com/travel), which sets out a calendar of events across the world, would need to be attached to information about crowds and climate to make up the site of our dreams. On its own, the site is excellent, perhaps the only place in the world that places Bjork's concert in an amphitheatre in Nîmes next to the WWE Smackdown! in Paris next month. The Kiosque also has news of foreign festivals...

CulturekiosqueCulture Kiosque: The Euro Guide to Culture

Some like culture, and some like Culture -- art, symphony and opera, jazz and dance, the works. For the Big C culture fan, Culturekiosque is a score. It's a high-quality webzine that lets you keep your finger on the pulse of the international culture scene. The site notably offers an events calendar that lists cultural events taking place across the world, something that travelers might appreciate. It also features more substantive articles and reviews, which, although written in English, are not limited to the cultural happenings in the Anglophone world. (The site explicitly refers to itself as "The European Guide to Arts and Culture Worldwide.") So, while you'll get Culturekiosque's take on how things went down at this year's Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, you'll also get their view on how the Orchestre de Paris is faring under its new German conductor. Also worth a particular mention is the web site's special jazz series called Sons of Miles, a 41-part series that looks back at Miles Davis and the many jazz musicians he influenced. A great resource for the jazz aficianado. To access many parts of the site, users will need to register

The arts online


"The European Guide to Arts and Culture Worldwide", Culturekiosque is a worthy and longstanding primer on the personalities and events at the highbrow end of the arts spectrum. Thankfully devoid of the Anglo-centricism that afflicts similar English-language sites, it has sections devoted to art, archaeology, haute cuisine, opera, jazz, dance and classical music, as well as film and cutting-edge pop culture. It is being upgraded, but content is still regularly added. Registration is required, but it is free.

"Another good source of event information is culturekiosque.com, which bills itself as "The European Guide to Arts, Culture and Entertainment Worldwide" (though its content is focused primarily on North America and Europe). The site is divided into six distinct sections, including art and archeology, dance and opera, but it's the world event calendar that keeps in-the-know globetrotters informed of key cultural happenings in major cities. The calendar listings provide overviews of events and links to other sources of information."

The New York Times
16 June 2002

"For those with international travel plans, Culturekiosque.com [is a] good alternative.... The site's calendar, which covers North America and Europe, makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity. Culturekiosque editors and contributors update its reviews and listings daily, conferring stars on outstanding events."

Was den User auf dieser Site erwartet, das kann sich wirklich sehen lassen. Die ganze Welt des Films, der Musik und des Tanzes auf hervorragend gestalteten und übersichtlich präsentierten Seiten. Wer der nächste Oscarpreisträger wird, mag noch in den Sternen stehen. Culturekiosque wagt schon mal eine Prognose mit teils überraschenden Vermutungen. Aber auch Klassikfans kommen nicht zu kurz. Der nächste Opernabend dürfte gerettet sein.

The Sunday Times of London

" ...Sites such as these prove that the web can accommodate lofty cultural aims... the multi-award-winning, if somewhat arch, Culture Kiosque (www.culturekiosque.com) also offers a selection of subsidiary magazines devoted to society and the arts. Essays outlining how procedures in the most intellectually boring election in American history conceal an insidious acceptance of censorship, nestle alongside pieces as diverse as the subject of swing under the Nazis, and a paean to the braised heart of lettuce, much neglected in British cookery. Which is criminal, apparently."

Brill's Content, April 2000
Best of the Web: Diversions
"...[Culturekiosque's] European sensibility transports you to a smoky café on Paris's Left Bank. The e-zine, which uses spare design, dark colors, and simple fonts, offers Cultural Coverage of Europe and North America. There's a mix of listings information and feature stories, so you can read a review of the recent Honoré Daumier exhibit at Paris's Grand Palais or check on the closing date of the Jasper Johns exhibit at the Yale University Art Gallery.

The real treasures are the stories about emerging bands and artists in Europe, such as the December profile by Time magazine writer Bruce Crumley of the French music group Zebda, which draws on various musical styles and influences. Culturekiosque's editors and contributors represent a broad range of publications, including the International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal Europe, the German daily Handelsblatt, France's Le Monde newspaper, and Britain's Financial Times."
