OFF food, moi jamais 😉 Well Monday it was off to OFF. Think Glastonbury for chefs and foodists. The two day festival took place in Deauville (Paris’s 21st arrondissement, many Parisians have second homes there). Omnivore, the organisiers brought together some of the crème de la crème of the gastronomic scene aswell as some young up and coming talent.

Last night happened to be the third day running I ended up at the Nouveau casino (Wednesday: the very crazy glaswegian this, Thursday: a surreal shoot for them). Nouveau Casino, a small venue in the 11th/Oberkampf area is right next to the Café Charbon. For the album launch of Beat Torrent (French turntablist duo DJ Pfel & DJ Atom – won 4 x World DMC Team Champions as part of C2C) they put the two spaces together. Making a kind of ‘chilled’ café area (pictured above with DJ B-Loo) and than an absolute carnage main area in the nouveau casino space. Read the rest of this entry »

Monday munchies: Wood ice cream & fashionistas

Monday kicked off early with a mad dash to get my Friday freebie (I’m sure you’ll hear about it later). After rubgy tackling some other freebie finders 😉 it was off on the RER to Maison & objet situated North of Paris at Parc d’expositions. While half of Paris last week were oogling at the boys on the catwalks another half were oogling the latest fashion in homeware design. Maison & objet is THE trade salon for everything from carpets to knives. I had already spent most of Friday wandering around the 7 halls in search of the perfect plate. Monday was less wandering and more seeing some amazing chefs collaborate with some equally amazing designers/photographers/architects in order to create some brilliant dishes. Paris des chefs an event hosted by Maison & Objet and Omnivore (the food guide tendance) brought together some interesting foodie/design teams.
