Omnivore: Foodies’ GQ

IMG_09680

The crazy and curious die Annakonda is back for the 11th edition of Omnivore, the leading food festival around the world! A few numbers? 3 days of festival, 150 chefs, pastry cook, bartenders, …, 110 demos, 10 omnivore prices, 5 fucking dinners, 70 exhibitors, 2 pop-up dinners, 5 masterclass scenes. Revelation, novelties, unique meeting. My first time. I didn’t really know what to expect but believe me after three full days spent there, the festival is my first one but surely not the last one. Although you may wonder why this is coming up on the blog, you should know that gastronomy is art, art is creativity and in this case, it becomes luxury. How to match different savors, how to make it taste and look good, how to tell a story around the meal, how to find the perfect drink. The work is indeed tremendous and I show a lot of respect to all the chefs out there. Continue reading “Omnivore: Foodies’ GQ”

Le Salon De L’Homme & Des Belles Montres

Hello there everyone! Last weekend in Paris took place Le Salon De L’Homme & Des Belles Montres. What is this all about? They were initially separated. The Gentlemen’s Trade Fair aka Le Salon De L’Homme was created last year and deals with everything men related, from fashion to lifestyle through technology, gastronomy, cars etc. On the other side, Les Belles Montres was a salon only dedicated to watches. You are going to tell me, Anna, what were you doing there? Well, you know me, I am basically sticking my nose everywhere. Moreover the industries of men are quite unknown for me so it is logical to somehow discover what’s going on here and there. Isn’t it what snakes do? Back to serious, to me it was pretty genius to unite both of them. Why? They complete each other in the way that they are targeting men. In terms of marketing and communication, it is probably easier also to related one to the other.
