Paris' premiere event for foodies and budding Cordon Bleu chefs, the Festival of Gastronomy runs between the 26th and 28th of September, and will be heaven for anyone who appreciates fine food and drink. Parisians are fanatical about their cuisine, and this event brings together the very best food producers and chefs, all vying for recognition and glory at the heart of Paris' 18th arrondisement.
The festival has been running since 2011, but has already become firmly established as one of the world's great gastronomic events. Part of the appeal is the presence of the most talented chefs from all around France. These magicians of the kitchen produce special festival menus that are served up for the delight of festival-goers, making this an unbeatable chance to sample everything that makes French cooking the envy of the world. Attend workshops how to partner food dishes with fine wines, watch masterclass sessions from great chefs and visit the brewery of Parisian Thierry Roche, who will provide the ideal way to round off a memorable visit.
You can also explore foods from across the French speaking world, with representation from as far afield as the Indian Ocean island of Reunion, and gorge yourself on the finest French cheeses. No event in the world provides such a rich and varied selection of gourmet foods, and all of them served up for festival goers to sample at their leisure. So if you adore French food, a trip to the Hotel Herse d'Or at the end of September will be the ultimate city break experience.
