Subject: Free food and wine in Paris? Oui

The Los Angeles Times travel section had a note today about a program in Paris to promote wine tasting and wine appreciation. Le Fooding <> is taking a novel approach by hosting tastings in restaurants around Paris that feature free food and wine. Of course, these are very popular and attract hundreds of people. But what better way to meet the locals than standing in line for free food and wine? The only catch is that you need a password which is posted on the above website approximately four days before the event.

There are three more tastings scheduled this year - September 13, October 4 and November 8. You can read the LA Times article at

Bon appetit, Mark Los Angeles
