260 exhibitors will be displaying their wares at the fourteenth edition of Degustha, the French food and wine fair which will be held for five days (Friday August 24-Tuesday August 28) in the village of Hagenthal in Alsace. The event will be attended by artisan producers from all over France who will present the specialties typical of their terroirs. The wine stands will be dominated by Alsatian producers, though the products of the other great wine-producing regions will also be present on display. Cheese will also be very much in prominence with products made by the monks of the abbeys of Citeaux and Tamié, artisan goat’s cheeses and Munsters fermiers DOP from the Vosges. Brittany will be present with its typical kouign-amann cakes, crêpes and savory galettes, not to mention cider. Also on show, pleurotes mushrooms, herbs from Ain and spices from Guadeloupe in a cornucopia of quality-guaranteed products, the fruit of the labor and dedication of small-scale artisans. A place of honor at Degustha 2001 will be reserved to the departmental association of individual producers at whose stands it will be possible to taste and buy all manner of products, from organic bread and saucisses des carpes, to patés, terrines, cured meats, liqueurs, candies and much, much more. Naturally enough, Slow Food will also be sending a delegation to the fair and SF members who show their membership cards at the entrance will be entitled to a free ticket for the duration of the event.
