Experience a bit of France at the Président Cheese Paris to Provence Festival over three big days, 21-23 November 2014 at Como House and Gardens South Yarra. The extravagant Président Cheese Paris to Provence Festival will once again showcase the crème de la crème of France over three huge days, right in the heart of Melbourne.
In its fifth year, Président Cheese Paris to Provence will take guests on a journey to the French countryside, showering them with food, language, romance, culture and a truly decadent sense of joie de vivre, an enthusiasm and enjoyment for life. The gardens of Como House will be transformed into a French market village, with French retailers and producers showcasing Melbourne’s finest French food, wine, fashion, books, music, children’s clothing and toys, classes, home décor and 300 year old French traditions.
The festival is an interactive, visual and sensory experience that will no doubt bring nostalgia to those who have visited the French countryside, and give new experiences to those who haven’t been. “I’ve been perfecting Paris to Provence over the last five years. My aim is for visitors to walk in and be immediately transported to the French countryside; everything from the smell, the sounds, the sights and the taste of Paris to Provence is designed to inspire an indulgent French sensory experience,” Paris to Provence founder Laura Rancie said.
With cooking demonstrations from some of Melbourne’s favourite chefs including renowned French pastry chef Pierrick Boyer, indulgent food tastings, vibrant wines, roaming performers, 3D Notre Dame puzzle reconstructions and other French activities & traditions dotting the gardens this is a much-anticipated event that will entice both the young and young at heart.
