To celebrate it's 10th anniversary, the group known as Le Fooding is hosting "Fooding a la Mer" tomorrow (Saturday) evening on the Hi Hotel Beach in Nice. The event runs from 6 p.m to midnight and 1,000 people are expected. Food is being provided by a great group of chefs and restaurants: Mauro Colagreco (Le Mirazur, Menton), Mickaël and Gaël Tourteaux (Flaveur, Nice), Armand Arnal (La Chassagnette, near Arles) and Mickael Gracieux (L'Aromate, Nice). For the apero, you'll get to try the Bécot Clicquot, a biscuit hors d'oeuvre created by Apollonia Poilâne (of the famous baking family in Paris), which will be served, of course, with plenty of Veuve Clicquot.And patissier/chocolatier Sébastien Gaudard of Delicabar will be down from Paris doing the desserts. All in all, it sounds like a fab evening...and you can be sure there will be lots of the fun foodie hijinks for which Le Fooding is known. Best of all, every centime goes to Action contre la Faim for hunger relief. Tickets are 15€ per person and you can pay right at the beach. For more info: www.lefooding.com or 04-97-07-26-26.
