For the seventh year in a row, the Fête de la Gastronomie is entertaining and educating Parisians about the pleasures of food. The Fête de la Gastronomie translates to the Festival of Gastronomy, and it will be going on at the Atelier Guy Martin on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of September 2013.
This is the third year that the Atelier Guy Martin is participating in the Fête de la Gastronomie, and this year the atelier is cleverly calling its event ‘We Will Cook You.’ The event will allow participants to try their hand at creating different dishes that they might never have considered cooking before.
The Atelier Guy Martin is a space that is dedicated to teaching those who are not experienced in the kitchen how to improve their cooking skills and whip up some gourmet meals. However, the activities at this establishment represent just one facet of the Fête de la Gastronomie.
Other events that are part of this festival include mushroom tastings at a variety of produce merchants, introductions to a diverse range of cuisines like Mediterranean and vegetarian, and samples of fresh vegetables. Visitors can check out the entire schedule of the Fête de la Gastronomie by taking a look at the festival’s website.
Guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg are in a central location that enables them to access the festivities, which are occurring in various locations across the city of Paris. Those who are feeling adventurous can even venture out to other cities in France where the festival is also taking place. Other participating areas include the Ardennes, Alsace and Lyon — regions that will reveal their own kinds of specialities to delight all taste buds.
