It seems more that fair to have its own festival, to gather the finest food ever, French! This year the festival will be held from the September 16th until 22nd, when everyone will have a honor to celebrate delicious cuisine...it will be all about appreciating French food and wines, wine tastings, food events and classes in Paris and the rest of France.
