To celebrate the rich diversity of the French gastronomic tradition, Frédéric Lefebvre, French Secretary of State for Trade, SMEs, Services, Tourism, the Professions and Consumption, created La Fête de la Gastronomie last year. I had met Mr. Lefebvre last year at Les Etoiles de Mougins, during the 6th Festival International de la Gastronomie.


To promote the 2012 edition of La Fête de la Gastronomie (Sept. 22nd), that he wants to expand to the U.S., Mr. Lefebvre came to Los Angeles. Today, we had brunch at Alain Giraud’s Maison Giraud around pastry/baker chef Noubar Yessayan’s crispy croissants, delicious pains aux raisins and pains au chocolat, and Michel Blanchet’s smoked salmon.
