Fabulous discoveries await at the
Comptonales event. Hit the country road in Compton in your own
vehicle, or hop on the free shuttles to go visit the eight gourmet
stops. At every one of the stops, you’ll be greeted by passionate
producers eager to share their know-how and introduce you to
daring local gastronomy. Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., treat your
taste buds to generous dishes and original culinary creations.
Craftspeople, musicians and activities for kids will also be a
part of this festive gathering.
Look forward to a feast! The Festin
des Grâces, held on September 30, 2018 starting at 11 a.m.,
is a one-of-a-kind gourmet lunch served out in the field on the
magnificent grounds of the Fromagerie La Station cheese shop. A
big tent will be set up and a parking lot is available for motorists. After your
pre-lunch drink and hors d’oeuvres, choose your appetizer, main
course and dessert among those prepared by the nine talented
featured chefs. Connoisseurs can go for the works by indulging in
the platter of regional cheeses and getting advice on
wine-and-food pairings from a famous sommelière!
The next best thing to having your own
garden or orchard is being able to pick your own fruits and
vegetables! Have a relaxing day out in the fields, meet the
welcoming farmers and fill your basket with the freshest produce.
September is the month when most of the region’s fruits and
vegetables are in season!
