World on your plate: French
Saturday 17 July, 2010
C'est Magnifique! Delicious crepes abounded for the Kai to Pie French World on Your Plate. There is an old French proverb that reads “There is no such thing as a pretty good omelette.” Of course the French take their cuisine seriously, but that doesn’t mean cooking French food should be impenetrable. As chef Julia Child explained, “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients.” Visitors discovered the tantalising taste of French gastronomy. The fabulous chefs Clément Richer of La Cantine du Torchon and Cédric Dupont of Pastis fed a hungry crowd with generous servings while members of Club Manouche provided the soundtrack. La Bourrée dancers also performed and incorporated a little crowd participation!
Auckland Museum's Valrie Noiret-Leblanc shares some impressions of her favourite French food on our blog and check out the recipe for crepes ooh la la!
