Super-Chefs’ Pop-ups at Grand Palais, Les Frere Blanc Fete de la Gastronomie & Ice Cream Truck Buzz
Backed by Relais&Chateaux and, in collaboration with Potel et Chabot, the Biennale des Antiquaires festivities begin with a VIP Gala Dinner created by 3-star Michelin superchef Michel Guèrard on September 12th. Menu 190€. Then it’s over to the pop-ups to provide “the gourmet heart of the event”, bien sur, we are in France darling. This is exciting, lunch and dinner will be served up by the following – expect fireworks. And, if you go every day you’ll have tasted the top chefs treats without having to leave your favourite city: Sounds good eh! 14th September – Michel Roth: Le Ritz15th September – Jean-Andre Charial: L’Oustau de Baumanière, Baux-de-Provence16 September – Jacques Chibois, La Bastide Saint-Antoine, Grasse17th September – Jean-Michel Lorrain, La Côte Saint-Jacques & Spa, Joigny18th September – Patrick Henriroux, La Pyramide, Vienne19th September – Guy Martin, Le Grand Vefour, Paris20th September – Michel Rostan, Restaurant Michel Rostang, Paris21st September – Davy Tissot, La Villa Florentine, Lyon22nd September – César Troigros, Maison Troigros, Roanne23rd September – Edouard Loubet, Bastide de Capelongue, Bonnieux-en-Provence.Reserve on T: 01 53 23 15 25 But where can we eat without all the celebrity-chef high-kicking ho-ha, is a frequent request. Darlings, look no farther than the Frères Blanc addys: They’re always a delight to the eye, and the palate, with seasonal décor showcasing the products they’re using at the time. You walk by them all the time, next time stop at, say: Au Pied de Cochon, Le Grand Café Capucines, Le Procope, L’Alsace, Chez Jenny, La FermetteMarbeuf, Le Petit Zinc, Le Flora Danica, Charlot Roi des Coquillages, La Lorraine, Grand B, LeSud (my fave), Le Copenhague, Le Bar André at La Rochelle, La Lorraine au Luxembourg and all the Chez Cléments. And, because Les Frères Blanc have you in mind, diarise 19-26 September when the genial Bernard Leprince, MOF, Chef des Chefs du Groupe Frères Blanc plan a programme of tastings and discoveries in each of the restaurants. Most of the addys have history so expect “backstage” tours, music, kitchen visits, expect to be impressed. “With all our animations we aim to show our customers how restaurants function in France, how we use excellent local products and how gastronomie can be fun and cultural”, explains Bernard Le Prince. There’s no charge for the extra fun and frolics but do book ahead here. Remember the enchanting film Les Triplettes de Belleville (around 2003)? And the Citroen HY driven by Madame Souza? Well, go to @GlacesGlazed to track INSEAD graduate Henri Guittet’s rock n’roll superstar ice cream truck in your ‘hood, the best glace ever is served out of a Citroen HY! Guittet‘s making/creating innovative ice-cream because he loves it, wants to break the codes of tradi blends that he loathes.  London has influenced this glace-o-phile who learned his craft at Mairie de Paris, evening school, and honed it chez Lenôtre.

Born in Hampton, Middlesex, UK, Margaret Kemp is a lifestyle journalist, based between London, Paris and the world. Intensive cookery courses at The Cordon Bleu, London, a wedding gift from a very astute ex-husband, gave her the base that would take her travelling (leaving the astute one behind) in search of rare food and wine experiences, such as the vineyards of Thailand, 'gator hunting in South Florida, learning to make eye-watering spicy food in Kerala;pasta making in a tiny Tuscany trattoria. She has contributed to The Guardian, The Financial Times Weekend and FT. How To Spend, The Spectator, Condé Nast Traveller, Food & Travel, and Luxos Magazine. She also advises as consultant to luxury hotels and restaurants. Over the years, Kemp has amassed a faithful following on BonjourParis. If she were a dish she'd be Alain Passard's Millefeuille “Caprice d'Enfant”, as a painting: Manet’s Dejeuner sur l’herbe !
