Fooding 2000 - 2015: La Revanche des Faubourgs

04 may, 2015

In order to celebrate its fifteenth birthday, Le Fooding is sharing its cake! With its fans, its favorite chefs and with an explosive chapter of food history...

Born on the outskirts of gastronomical conformism (at Nova, rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine), Le Fooding has never ceased to accompany, encourage and honor the most liberated culinary initiatives, by associating them with music, writing, design and graphic arts… In order to celebrate its first fifteen years, Le Fooding has therefore chosen to pay homage to the kitchens, the “agit’popotes” and the emblematic artists of ex underdog-neighborhoods, which have become the international capitals of cool.

On June 5th, 6th and 7th, the best faubourgeois chefs, from the world’s most creative faubourgs (Brooklyn, Shoreditch, East Berlin, Mission District…), will come blow out the candles of a giant city cake: three days of festive delights, in NorthEast Paris and around, in order to celebrate fifteen years of urban rebirth, deliciousness, and rejuvenated traditions… all of which will be revealed early May on!

In order to ease the wait, here are a few things to nibble on:

Friday night (from 7PM): Foodstock
