Le Marche: Feria de Cocina Francesa


Today and Tomorrow at Plaza Francia in Buenos Aires, there is a marvellous little French Festival going on. In honor of Bastille Day, the event rounds up all sorts of purveyors of French foods around the city in one concentrated park. Marvellous aromas of crepes, boeuf bourgignon, fresh baguettes, and oyster stew fill the air, and hoards of people came out despite the chilly winds. In light of the horrible attack in Nice last week, it was lovely to see a group proudly representing their French culture and honoring those who lost their lives with this beautiful festival.
