The RVA French Food Festival, April 27-28, will highlight the best of French food, culture, music, wine, and much more!

The RVA French Food Festival will soon provide Richmond-area residents with the opportunity to enjoy French cuisine while raising money for the Little Sisters of the Poor charity which provides home and care to elderly citizens of Virginia who need it the most. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy authentic French gourmet entrees made by renowned master chefs, as well as a nice selection of French wines and deserts. Vendors will also be onsite in this event’s Parisian Marketplace, where attendees can purchase handcrafted jewelry, crafts, soaps, clothing items, and more.  If you live in Richmond, this is one event you don’t want to miss!

The menu selection put together for this year’s festival is actually pretty budget-friendly, despite the fact that each of the Richmond-area chefs participating have won multiple awards. Entrees made by Master Chef Paul Ebling will be sold for just $12 each and will include fancy items such as Crusty Salmon Filet coulibiac with spinach and lobster sauce. Chef Sean Murphy will be offering Gumbo Ya Ya prepared Cajun-style, along with shrimp, grits, and French doughnuts. Other featured chefs include Michael McClure, John Maxwell, and Mike Ledesma. Over a half-dozen French wines will be available for purchase, as will an eclectic selection of desserts, breads, and mouth-watering sandwiches.
