Voilah! The annual French Festival in Singapore returns with a selection of cultural events from October 25th to December 15th 2011, providing the platform to raise the diversity of France and its culture.
Here are two events that may be of interest to all (or at least some) of my foodie readers.
Event: The French Marché
It’s an enactment of a typical French marketplace will allow Singaporeans the opportunity to sample the flavours of different French regions and terroirs. Producers will be there to impress with their selection and visitors can shop to their hearts’ content of authentic French delicacies & produce, including wines, cheeses, preserves, Foie gras, and more!
Date(s): 21-27 November 2011
Venue(s): Plaza Singapura Atrium
Timing(s): 10.00h-22.00h daily for the duration
Presenter: French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore (FCCS)
Event: La Paulée de Singapour
Originally a fête to celebrate the end of the grape harvest in Meursault, Burgundy – La Paulée de Singapour will take the form of an outdoor party of French food, wines from Burgundy and French music. Taking place at Fort Canning Park for the first time in Singapore, La Paulée is an international wine event with prestigious editions being staged in New York, San Francisco & Aspen! Take in the conviviality, enjoy the wines and be transported perhaps to the rustic atmosphere of Meursault.
