Taste of Paris

Wednesday, 10 December 2014


Forgive me if this is beginning to look a lot like a food blog, but I couldn't not write about the lovely welcome back to Paris I had on Monday in the shape of an invitation to the launch of Taste of Paris. It's a new food festival that will be held in Paris in May, featuring the French capital's finest restaurants. An export from London, established in 2004, it has grown into a foodie super-power, having setting up camp in cities all around the world, including Sydney, Dubai and Amsterdam. Paris is its latest conquest. 

Installed in the patio of the lavish Prince de Galles Hotel near thChamps-Élysées, were cooking stations manned by the likes of top chef, Alain Ducasse (ok I didn't actually see him cooking, but I was assured he was there, probably being harassed by paparazzi, journos and food fans), Joel Robuchon and Stephanie Le Quellec, the hotel's in house chef, who was serving up tasty little bowls of sautéed langoustines. This isn't your average food festival, forget stalls and food 
trucks, this is a festival for food connoisseurs, who know their Bertrand Grebauds from their Christian Constants. Nonetheless, if you like fancy food and want to sample dishes from some of the city's most renowned restaurants, mark your diaries!
