Indulge in Franceís famous cuisine during the Fete de la Gastronomie

08th September, 2016
On the last weekend of the summer, September 23-25, locations all over France will be celebrating both their local and national cuisines as part of the Fete de la Gastronomie.

Having first been established in 2011, the Fete de la Gastronomie is a nationwide celebration thrown with passion and style. Each edition is different, however, as the events centre around a key theme which differs every year.

Last year, more than 2000 events across the country were held for the Fete de la Gastronomie, with a similar amount also planned for this yearís proceedings. It brings together not only local communities but also visitors wishing to find out more about the several different cuisines found across France.

One of the most common events you will find across the Fete are a selection of special menus painstakingly devised by local chefs and restaurants, on offer for the public to taste and experience. Not only do visitors get to try some delicious local food, but they will also be able to exchange ideas and recipes with their fellow food-lovers and maybe even gain some insights from the chefs themselves.

These events also offer up the opportunity to learn about the art of pairing, and how important it is to find the perfect wine accompaniment. In France, itís almost a guarantee that good food is also paired with a good wine, with chefs and restaurateurs on hand to offer their opinions to get the most out of your evening meal.

If youíre staying at one of our luxury villas in France this September, thereís no better way to learn more about the food on your plate than at a Fete de la Gastronomie event!
