Fête de la Gastronomie 2017: The Produce
Each year includes a different sponsor, this year's is Stéphane Layani, who highlights the place of the product in making good food: "Without good products, we can not make good dishes .. I want to put the product at the center of the table and, with it, to promote the whole food chain, which begins with farmers and producers to whom we owe a lot, we must respect them: it is a difficult job to feed us everyday, "he reminds us.
Chefs and craftsmen will get the chance to put the emphasis onto the product and invite the French to help with local products and recipes through popular banquets, picnics and workshops.
Local and national museums will also be on hand and will open their doors for pedagogical paths around the heritage of tableware.
