During the October festival of the ‘Roanne Table Ouverte’ a ‘Salon du Livre’ (Book show) was staged in Roanne, primarily in celebration of all things to do with food and cooking. 1000’s of books were available on all cookery subjects, and featuring many famous French chefs and their recipes.
There were also plenty of ‘collector’ items from the past, including old copies of original and famous Michelin Guides- there was even a copy of the very first 1900 edition! WOW!
The famous, 3-Michelin starred, Maison Troisgros was also at the top of the celebratory list, with Michel Troisgros personally presenting a special demonstration of two of his latest Italian dishes from his recently published cookery book called “Michel Troisgros et l’Italie”
There were also several other reputable regional chefs demonstrating their cookery skills and ideas to a packed house of interested and thrilled visitors.
The show was well organised with a cookery school for children, and exhibitions and information on the origins of food throughout the world, and quality of diet. To be honest, a thoroughly superb and entertaining event with both an abundance of facts and fun.
Samples of fascinating past menus from the Troisgros restaurant were on display, showing, once again, the empathy of art and good food.
