A Languedoc Evening – in New YorkBy Marisa D'Vari | September 1st, 2009 | Category: Languedoc-Roussillon | No Comments »
... so many of you know that I spent a few fantastic weeks in the Languedoc this summer, guest of a gorgeous Chateau with access to some of the best restaurants in the world. Of course, the thing about the Languedoc is that it is so large. Wineries were sometimes two hours apart!
Happily, no need to go that far on August 31 when in anticipation of the Festival Sud de France in October, we had a celebratory kick off at the surprising 'Water Taxi Beach" in Long Island City. Some of you might know I am from L.A. and with the swimsuit wearing vollyball players (no, not our group) it seemed so Manhattan Beach!
Chef Cédric Tovar of Peacock Alley was there to prepare specialties from the South of France, and much Languedoc wine was to be had. During the upcoming festival, you will be able to enjoy a city-wide "tasting" of wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region at restaurants and wine bars. Salute!
