Dimanche 3 mars le Salon de l'Agriculture
So many handsome chickens - who could stay away from the salon de l'Agriculture?
In French conversation class at WICE (I was the only anglophone among 6 Francophones...we spoke first half in French, second half in English). A French woman said every Parisian child goes to the Agriculture salon. It is a must-do!
I felt no different than any other French 5-year old attending.
I petted everything in sight - my 1st farm fair..
Funny to see so many cows in the middle of Paris...completely unexpected.
So many people attending on Sunday...but the expo is contained in 7 huge buildings and everyone behaved
I could have so easily mis-behaved over this reclette sandwich...I was dying to
Wines of every region were flowing but I abstained here too
Not sure what this boeuf-gateaux signifies but I like it.
The kouign amann were flowing too so to speak...
I saved myself for the Alsacian etoiles - my downfall. Who can wait for Christmas next for these cinnamon star cookies to show up in Paris?
Sexy Bretons were at the best pastry counters IMHO
Very sexy giant cakes of nougat from Montelimar - with caramel au beurre sale! Ooh la la
Enfin I succumbed to a portion of kouign amann warmed up and shared at dinner three ways. Big Merci to Trisha who suggested I enter as an international professional (I designed dog biscuit packaging). The salon de l'Agriculture is one major Miam/Yum
