February is Salon de l'Agriculture time.
And the winner is...
You have 10 days to meet this lovely creature.
Or these baby lambs.
I was assured that these sheep
Made this Corsican Tomme Sardanaise. They were standing right beside the cheese so it has to be non?
I went with Solli,a vegetarian opening day to Porte de Versailles Metro #12
We shared many tastes but no jambon..
These tempting Alsacien cheese and ham-covered pretzels were off limits.
We did share a Bretonne crepe. No problem.
And half a dozen oysters(7,50).
Non-stop shucking on the spot.
We each got our own sheep (brebis) ice cream cones (3 euros) - coffee and rose flavors. Utterly delicious.
And champignon de Paris (4,50 kilo) from Marianne of Ile de France. They taste so much better than anything you'll find in stores or the marche.
Having a companion keeps you from making a fool of yourself over Alcasien pain d'epice cookies.
Or buying a whole kuglehoph and wolfing it down.
Temptation beckons everywhere at the Salon. Food from every region in France is here for tasting and buying - a unique opportunity.
Wild horses couldn't keep me from buying Clementine jam from Corsica.
Chunky Clementine confiture. You'd have to go to Corsica to find this. Heaven.
The Salon is nothing if not educational.
We inhaled huge truffles but did not take them home.
This is just Halle1 with all the farm animals.
I'll be going back for a pet or two.
If you're in Paris Don't-miss this event!
