France marks the arrival of the Fall season with Fete de la Gastronomie. At last count 2000 events are scheduled all over France on September 23, 2011.
From 3 pm to 5 pm at Palais des Congres in Paris (Level-Floor 0), you will be able to sample these creations for free courtesy of Confédération des Artisans Pâtissiers de France and Salon du Chocolat at their stand.
Continuing our pastry round, Millefeuille fans (or Napoleon as we call it in the U.S) are in for a treat during Mois du Millefeuille ('Napoleon Month') running from September 12 to October 9, 2011 at all good pastry shops in France.
3 twists on Millefeuille are the stars of this epicurean treat including Poire-Croc (with Pear of course) from September 19 to September 25th. (* Poire Croc image from Mois du Millefeuille site. This site is in French only)
