For three days, South Yarra gets a pop-up French village at Como House and Garden
Paris to Provence returns to South Yarra for three days of good food, wine and music. Melbourne's French expats, Francophiles and bon vivants will gather to soak up the atmosphere and participate in activities ranging from the famous French bulldogs fancy dress parade, a brand new singles speed dating event, to French cooking masterclasses.
This year's festival will include a night of gypsy swing dancing for La Soirée Musette from 5pm on Saturday, as well as a the new Bordeaux and Beyond wine bar and courtyard. The French market will of course be back for your street food fix, cheese and wine pairings, and providores you can stock your pantry from. Look out for La Grande Récré kids garden for some kid-friendly activities and events, and check out the French Kitchen, where Australia's top French chefs will host masterclasses on how to master French cooking skills in the kitchen.
