Don't forget today's the start of the Sud de France Festival.
The celebration kicks off this morning with a fantastic, one-day, southern French food and wine market in Cavendish Square from 10am to 6pm. The event is free and gives market-goers a unique chance to sample some of Languedoc-Roussillon’s most authentic food products and taste a selection of the region’s extensive range of wines, in a fun and informal atmosphere. There's a seafood bar serving oysters and mussels accompanied by sparkling Limoux wines plus wine and olive oil tasting sessions as well.
The Sud de France Festival runs until the 30th of September with many shops and restaurants around town and throughout the country displaying special Sud de France food and wine features. Fun events will be organised not only to tease your taste-buds with wonderful flavours but also to try out the Sud de France lifestyle where outdoor living in a casual yet elegant atmosphere is the way.
Main partners for the festival include Oddbins, Majestic, Laithwaites Wines, Jeroboams, John Lewis Food Hall, Roberson Wine, WSET and Café Rouge (which is running a competition to win a free food and wine hamper packed with goodies from the Languedoc-Roussillon region).
