La Sommeliere Wine and Sake Shop Stand!
For quite some time now citizens of Shizuoka City have taken over the events held to commemorate the sistership between their city and Cannes in Southern France.
The main attractions are held during the month of May to coincide with the Cinema Festival in Cannes!
One of these is the Tricolor Festival held mainly in Gofuku Cho, Shichiken Cho and Aoba Park Streets.
This year it is organized with all kinds of stands on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th from 13:00 and 18:00.
Let me show some examples (there are just too many, and you will have to discover the others!):
You will find the stand of La sommeliere Wine and sake Shop in Gofuku Cho Street in front of Aoi Tower just across from Shizuoka JR Station!
All kinds of French wines and even beer can be purchased by the glass or even bottle!
They also sell home-made quiches!
Ludovic Le Teigner, the top-class French Patissier in Shizuoka City had a hard time setting his stand up and already selling his cakes and biscuits at the same time all by himself!
The next time he will ask his wife along who had to look after their shop!
Ludovic is from Bretagne and many of his biscuits and jams are inspired by his birthplace!
Selling so quickly!
Eclatant is a company extolling the gastronomy of Shizuoka and Cannes among many other collaborations!
They certainly needed quite a few of them!
French residents were helping out!
Still in the same spot: KUKAI stand!
They specialize in flavored teas!
A touch of Southern France!
More scented teas!
Still in the same street: Figaro Bistro stand!
Escargots and olives!
Terrine/pate de campagne!
Let’s move to Shichiken-Cho Street near Isetan Department Store!
Lavigne Natural French wines stand!
All the wines served there are French and organic!
Plenty of food available!
No time to interview the staff!
For the perfect finish go and taste a real craft beer brewed in Shizuoka City with Naoki Mando and his staff from Aoi Brewing Co.!
Directly from a limited edition barrel!
Plenty of snacks there, too!
Subtle IPA and French Primeur Saison craft beers!
See you there again this afternoon!
