"Festival of Forgotten Vegetables" - I LOVE it!!!

Monday, September 05, 2011

This is from a travel ezine I receive, and this week focuses on harvest festivals - this one sounds perfect for us!

Forgotten Vegetables In France

If thereís a season that kindles nostalgia, itís fall, a perfect time for the annual Fete des Legumes Oublies, or Festival of the Forgotten Vegetables, in the small town of La Haye-de-Routot in Normandy, France. On Sunday, October 9, farmers, gardeners, chefs, and vegetable lovers come together to celebrate vegetables whose popularity have waned in recent decades. Tastings, workshops, and music offer lively accompaniment to the displays of unusual varieties of root vegetables, squash, and herbs.

La-Haye-de-Routot is in the countryside about 40 minutes from Rouen. In the region, traditional hotels are certainly an option, but may pale in comparison to other lodging choices, including chateaus, apartment rentals, country gites, and even homestays. With so many different ways to stay, there's something for every budget.

    I want to know what some of the "forgotten" vegetables are - like, brussel sprouts? (Which I like, especially oven-roasted.) What else might be a forgotten veg?

    Fun idea!!

And as for "ambisnackstrous" . . . I'd be slowed down maybe if I had to use my left hand to operate chopsticks while munching on potato chips (my all time faves) but . . . not absolutely sure about that even!
