The Arpajon bean fair
Few people in France know this man. However, this outstanding cook has updated, in a 15 year time, cooking contests for minor and major chefs all over the cooking galaxy creating a real interest of the great hotels or restaurant "brigades" for a renewal of recipes coming from the French cuisine.
Heading the "French Chef's Hats" (the "Toques Françaises), he made a new wind blowing into our profession. Through his missions for the "week of the taste", in schools or in prisons, his radio and television broadcasting (recently in the "Des racines et des ailes" French television magazine), he actively contributes to make people discover our jobs and our training of the large public. To be fully frank, it must be said that the movie "Ratatouille" has well ended this great year of promotion of the French cuisine around the world.
Some colleagues made demos for the greatest taste enjoyment of the numerous visitors.
We must highlight that the first 3 winners for sugar masterpieces were Japanese cooks working in high standard cake shops.
One of them even won the higest prize and received a Sèvres flower pot coming from the French Republic Presidence.
We wish that the addition of nice pictures of this event will give to all of you the desire to pay a visit to this fair next year.
We, the A.F. Touch team, will make our best efforts to blow to your direction, all epicurian friends and visitors, an essential wind : DESIRE
Patrick Asfaux, for A.F. Touch
