The Festival Mondial des Theatres de Marionnettes takes place in northeast France, considered by some to embody the best of French cuisine. Dishes tend toward the hearty, including tripe sausage, wild game and cheese. The festival itself is massive with performances starting at ten in the morning and extending late into the evening.
You’ll have your hands full settling on a schedule, so we suggest you make this recipe for Leek and Cheese Tart, known in France as flamiche. This savory tart is great for brunch, lunch or supper and can be made up to two days in advance.
You would be utterly remiss to leave the Ardennes region without enjoying some champagne. Have a chilled glass with your flamiche or if you are feeling more adventurous whip up a Ginger-Champagne Cocktail.
