Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris - L.A.

Editorial

SOLD OUT

Le Fooding? Hmm...

“Fooding”: the tastes of today. Without borders. Born in 2000, in Paris, on the seventh floor of Radio Nova, in the rush to meet an article deadline. “Food” + “ing”, to make food rhyme with feeling... A barbaric gerund in English. But what an outrage in French!

Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-L.A.?

A one-way ticket, to begin with...

Los Angeles has always been high on inspiration. L.A.: where local and tasty ingredients consistently come first. A simple grilled side of pork with salt and pepper can become an experience. Same for a taco or a bo bun. L.A.: capital of culinary combinations, full of fusion restaurants, Unidentified Food Objects, and dude chefs envied by everyone! L.A.: new territory and new culinary frontiers, home of the world’s best food trucks. L.A.: the only place where movie stars smile when they eat crispy pig head. L.A.: where cuisine carbonates with cool and slowly swallows 502.7 miles of not-exactly-digestible urban tentacles.

Much smaller, Paris is home to countless up-to-date chefs. They just don’t get mentioned enough. The media is too dazzled by the evanescent glittering stars.

The fact is that bourgeois cuisine is no longer France’s daily bread. Techno-cuisine never will be. In Paris, the gourmands are devouring the gourmets. Our favorite chefs are not celebrity chefs. Their photos aren’t printed on packs of vacuum-sealed ham. So where do you find these oh-so-Parisian luxuries? In their kitchens, of course! They’re frequently French, most certainly Parisian, and always authors. Free as birds in the air. Because you need air to fly in the face of convention. And to keep your flag flying high.

Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-L.A.?

Eleven incredible chefs, a fine Champagne, gutsy fromages, acclaimed DJs and graphic designers to feast your senses and do some conscious good.

Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-L.A.?

April 26 and 27, 2013, at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.
Hurry and book your tickets at www.legrandfooding.com. Twenty percent of our ticket sales support L.A. Food Bank & MOCA.
