France Gastronomy Fair 2017

This weekend, France celebrates its gastronomy. Ever since UNESCO declared  France's gastronomy as a World Intangible Heritage in 2010, the country has devoted a weekend in late September to rejoice in its culinary traditions.  All throughout France and its overseas departments, people will get together to partake at banquets, picnics, chef demonstrations, even conferences.   The theme this year centers around the cuisine of the people.   It is not necessarily about Haute Cuisine, it is everyday cooking prepared at home
with care using fresh locally grown products and shared convivially with family and friends or eaten at the local bistro and country inn.  Each region has its specialties from the Choucroute of Alsace to the Fondue from Savoie, from the escargots de Bourgogne to Bouillabaisse from Marseille and what about the Cassoulet of Toulouse and Crepes from Brittany or the Quiche from Lorraine ?.  This sampling of specialities have been popularized around the world and tourists from far and wide have come to France to taste these famous dishes.   In France  these culinary wonders  are simply served at a family get-together Sunday meal and even in children's school lunch dining halls.  As we celebrate French gastronomy , let me
 call.. A table everybody!!
