If you are in or around Paris tomorrow, consider buying Libération from your favorite press kiosk. From November 17 to November 21, the daily paper will include the 2006 edition of Le Guide du Fooding. This is a guide to Paris restaurants, to which I contributed this year with reviews of the food scene in the 4th arrondissement. This was a fun and exciting project to be a part of — albeit very demanding of my time and appetite! — and I hope the guide will be useful to you. (It should also be available online starting on November 28, but a paper copy is handy to have in your purse, no?)
And what is le Fooding you ask? A Parisian movement that was created some 6 years ago by two journalists who wanted to stir things up in the world of gastronomy, and put the “feeling” (with a French accent, it’s important) back into food. Amongst other things, they organize events in trendy locations all through the year, during which you can eat food prepared by up-and-coming chefs, taste excellent wine, listen to good music — all of this for free or a nominal fee.
The next event is the 6th Semaine du Fooding, taking place in Paris, Brussels and Béziers from November 28 to December 5 — more info on their website.
