These are the same results that came out weeks ago no?


Anti-alcoholics are unfortunates in the grip of water, that terrible poison, so corrosive that out of all substances it has been chosen for washing and scouring, and a drop of water added to a clear liquid like Absinthe, muddles it." ALFRED JARRY

Oh, sorry if these were already posted here. I must have missed it. I think the awards were announced on the 6th of December and there was an article listing the winners in this week's A Nous Paris.

What do you think about this fooding thing?

Some things I like, some I don’t, I guess. I really think the events they have are great. They make food fun and accessible to everyone; however being accessible to everyone tends to make them unbearably crowded as well. I also really like their guides and buy them every year. They put out a magazine a few months ago, which I didn’t like at all, but I haven’t seen it since. And the dictionary they just put out sounds a bit silly, but I haven’t actually seen it. There was a program a few weeks ago on Gourmet TV, which had several well known food critics giving their “finds” for the year. The guy from Nova, who was one of the creators of the term “fooding” was there, and he was definitely criticized by the others. They weren’t so upset about the concept, as they were about the fact that they choose to use an English sounding word. I think the more food events, the better.

It is silly, I looked at it with an eye to buying but certainly did not.

As for Les Vivres, Rosa Jackson wrote a glowing report of the mothership Petrelle which I referenced some weeks ago in the Digest and then we ate there and loved it as well, see 9 New etc.... and while there checked out Les Vivres; where

the chef, Jean-Luc André,....had opened...., a door or two down at #28,....designed for businesspeople who nowadays eat lunch late and on the fly, open from noon to something like 5 PM, with takeout and a few tables and an chalkboard with things like salmon quiche

Fresh_A, what do you think of the whole "fooding" thing?

I am intrigued by fooding, and knoweth not how big , significant it is. The idea, thoroughly laudable, is to bring food back to the streets, to combine the two English words "Food" and "Feeling" which must be sending the Academie Francaise into apoplexy.

This 26th June I understand there will be a fooding event in Paris, on La Plage du Batifour, but I cant go.

Is there anyone who is? Anyone who knows about fooding in France??

The idea goes back to 2003, and was started by two journos...you pay 5 Euros to get in, and will need a password, then enjoy the food, socialise, mingle, and ....

Thanks for posting this. How I wish they had named it differently. When I go to some trsvel and food sites and they refer to someone like me, who appreciates a sincere chef and great food, as a foodie, I cringe.

"Foodie" is not an insult; it just denotes an interested amateur.

We discussed "le Fooding" on egullet a while back.

I tried to go to their event at the Palais de Tokoyo a few months ago, but gave up after waiting for a half an hour in a line that didn't even move. :sad:

Im planning on going to the event at the Batofar and hope it will be easier to get into, though I'm not counting on'it.

I think LouFood went to the first one.

Anyone else going?

Felice - I did go to the premiere Fooding/Batofar event way back 2003. I strongly encourage everyone to go. It's a rare chance to hang out and chat with young, hip Parisians and meet some of the best and coolest chefs in Paris in a laidback beach party/backyard BBQ/block-party atmosphere. This year, two-starred Eric Frechon of the Bristol and three-starred Antoine Westermann of Buerehisel/Mon Viel Ami will be amongst the chefs there. For those who don't read French, some of the more intriguing menu items include a beef and horse combo from Ploum; a head to foot hot dog from M. Frechon; and rosemary lamb's tongue on a stick with celery and lamb's foot ragout from Thierry Breton of Chez Michel. Even if the food runs out - and be forewarned that it does - there's plenty of free Badoit and good karma for all - this year's event benefits Action Contre Faim - Action Against Hunger.

When I've finally worked out how to reply , thank you for yr info on Fooding, and sorry to resurrect an issue.......

It seems an interesting way to try and bring the slightly elitist world of restaurant food to a new generation......and in a novel format; I like the idea of the French appropriating an English word, and giving it a slightly twisted meaning...but is it anything more than a fad??

I don't know if it's more than a fad. But I will say the younger generation is more casual and less inclined to embrace old fashioned protocal.

As for English words in French, reminds me of the conservative French politician who wanted to extract such words. He insisted that a corner kick must be always be called coup de pied de coin.

If it's a fad, it's a fad that's been going on for a few years now, and doing pretty well.

Hope it won't be too hot at the Batofar on Sunday... :cool:

We read today with interest Amanda Hesser’s column in The New York Times magazine where she detailed the ‘Le Fooding’ picnics (held in Paris, Marseilles, Nantes, and Montpellier), organized by the journalists Alexandre Cammas and Emmanuel Rubin. At the one in Paris, finger food of veal with fig chutney and beef with bonito and chives was served off the barbecue. About 1,600 attended, with more than 4,000 at the other three picnics.

Did any of you attend?

I tried to attend, but after standing in line for a few minutes it started to storm pretty violently--lightening, lots of heavy rain--and didn't let up for some time so I went to the movies instead. :sad:

We've been talking about Le Fooding for years. I didn't go this year - I was working. This is from the last thread.

I think LouFood went to the first one.
