Paris to Provence
returns to Como House
Francophiles rejoice. South Yarra’s Paris to Provence festival returns to Como House this weekend.
Stroll through a gorgeous pop-up village, with all the smells, textures and tastes of France. Tickets start at $15, with extra costs for demonstrations and meals across the weekend.
Here are five excellent reasons to pay a visit.
1. Philippe Mouchel
Watch one of Melbourne’s best chefs, PM24‘s Philippe Mouchel, demonstrate the art of French cooking. His modern bistro in Russell St, city, serves exceptional food – especially roast meat from the rotisserie.
2. Damian Sandercock
Kyneton’s charcuterie guru Damian Sandercock explains the art of the perfect picnic – beure de Gascogne, confit duck pie, Jambon Persille and sauce Gribiche. Damian makes exceptional charcuterie at the Piper St Food Store, including terrines, sausages, rillettes and pates.
3. Gabriel Gate
Hear television’s original French chef speak about filming Taste le Tour for SBS, with some remarkable food experiences along the way.
Patissier Pierrick Boyer (right) will demonstrate some of his favourite sweet dishes from the RACV Club’s patisserie Le Petit Gateau.
Book ahead to secure a table on the Como House terrace to enjoy some of Melbourne’s most authentic crepes from Le Petit Francais.
