Le Fooding and S.Pellegrino Celebrate “La Revanche des Faubourgs”
The trendy food guide Le Fooding is turning 15 years old this spring. For the occasion, a big international event of Parisian flair will take place with a music and food theme: la revanche des faubourgs (the revenge of the districts). A reference to the early days of the guide amidst the best fine dining addresses of the rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine without forgetting to encourage the promotion of more independent culinary experience, always associated to the world of contemporary art.
