National Food Fest in France

By Linda Tancs

The late cookbook author and TV chef Julia Child referred to French cooking as a serious art form and a national sport.  So it might be surprising that France has never hosted a national food festival.  Until now.  The inaugural La Fête de la Gastronomie will take place this year on 23 September (the first day of autumn) and will herald the start of autumn each year thereafter.  The theme this year will be “la Terre” (the land), highlighting local products made in different regions of France.  Famous chefs will cook on the streets, including Thierry Marx and Alain Ducasse.  Bon appétit!
