We all love going to the market! But of course we can agree, it is better if the place is pretty with little bars and cafes around for rewarding the effort.
But imagine that in addition to that, there were ten grand chefs serving as guides for your shopping and that there would even be tastings! It would really be a must, right?
A rendezvous has been set for Sunday, September 25th at the corner of avenue de Trudaine and rue des Martyrs in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. No need to bring your gloomy and grumpy air of an Italian actor to blend in at Place Lino Ventura since, looking back at the last edition of "Let's Go to the Market with the Chefs", the ambiance will be full of colors, with a joyful enthusiasm and form that often brings with it plenty of food. And if on top of that these ingredients are handpicked, then you can expect the atmosphere to be quite rosy.
But if the products are here, it is because women and men had a desire to cultivate them in the best possible way, with special attention paid to the impact that their work has on the environment and the future state of the planet. In any case this is what you may encounter at Place Lino Ventura, and you will surely be talking about the Slow Food movement in which a number of them participate. Remember that the 540 members of Relais & Châteaux are bound by a manifesto that follows this direction, they are committed to supporting productions that are as good for the land as for the economy and for taste. But for this meeting, we can also ogle this coupledom that guides these artisans of the land with the cooks who pride themselves on enriching their products.
Because for those who have yet to completely register what is going on, Relais & Châteaux has no shortage of talented chefs, but it is actually quite rare for these masters to venture out of their respective establishments with only their travel essentials, aprons, knives, and savoir-faire. And yet, if you come to do your shopping with these ten chefs who love going out in the city, you will discover first that they not only transform already exceptional products with a few motions of their hands, but they also love to accompany their passion with their words.
And really what is a chef without great ingredients, he is a bit like a painter without a palette of colors. So listen well behind the doors, and you will surely discover that the dialogue between the land and the plate is not only an issue of agriculture or agronomy but also sometimes a philosophy, the type of conversation that long-lasting couples know how to put into place.
