Salon International de l'Agriculture 2009

Yummy dried ham displayed at one of the stands.

The agriculture salon, or any salon for that matter, is fantastic. I spent quite a lot of time at the convention center at Porte de Versailles last Saturday looking at cows, pigs, sheep, etc. and learning about the various foodstuffs from the different regions of France. The salon is also a great place to gain weight because everyone is all too willing to give you samples of their products. I can't remember everything I ate, but I know I had a lot of cheese, meat, olives, sausages, bread and ice cream and a whole lot of fantastic wine. I even got to do a tasting in a completely blackened room. All in all, it was an excellent day.

Here in agricultural Aveyron, this exhibition gets so much coverage, you would think it was actually going on here! I've never been but I guess it's amazing.
