Today was the final day of the Paris Cookbook Fair, and I was determined not to miss the last day of this special event.
I got there early to attend a conference on ethnic cuisine in Paris, held by Olivia Snaije, co-author of The Ethnic Paris Cookbook, and Guillaume Le Roux, who writes a food blog called 716. Both are passionate about ethnic cooking.
I sampled Mexican wine at the Gula Magazine stand, which was ably represented by Samantha Lunam. The magazine has recently published a guide to Mexican wines, which was featured at the stand.
Passing by the Astral stand, a Russian publishing company, I heard two young women playing what was for me some very exotic music!
I watched award-winning Chef Pascal Aussignac cook up a batch of foie gras.
I sampled some delicious cheese, meats, and fruit juices at the Husmansbord stand, where I met Elin Agorelius. I raved about their Swedish fare last year!
I’ll be talking more about the cookbook fair in the days to come!
