Top Chefs at France's Fête de la Gastronomie
If you’ve been to France, you’ll know gastronomy is but a way of life. Every year, in the fourth weekend of September, the French take this passion into overdrive with the Fête de la Gastronomie.
Now in its third year, the festival will be held from September 20 -22. It will host a whole range of events through the country such as open banquets, tastings, special menus in restaurants, demonstrations of different food arts and trades, visits to businesses and farms, exhibitions and even street events.
Simultaneously 27 top chefs take to the streets with specially-crafted menus using seasonal produce from their home regions – a representation of the region’s culinary diversity. We scouted five Michelin-starred chefs we’re particularly looking out for. Bon appétit, everybody!
