fête de vendanges, montmartre

Last night, a crisp autumn breeze blew as we went up to Montmartre for the "fête de vendanges," or a kind of harvest festival to celebrate the grape harvest in the vineyards just outside the city. Wine makers from all regions of the country were offering samples and selling their finest bottles and traditional dishes. We stuck to bottles of red and matched them with foie gras sandwiches, which were possibly one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten - the foie gras was so tender it literally melted into the bread, almost like butter.
