The Epicuriales 2019

THE EPICUREAN WAY OF LIFE

Bordeaux is one of the cities that defends the epicurean way of life. What is an epicurean? The term epicurean is nothing more than a philosophy of life, it is to be a person who is looking for pleasure. Bordeaux invites you to discover all the pleasures of the epicurean through its arts of living, its cultural influence and a past steeped in history.

I live my life as a Bordeaux epicurean by walking through the streets of the city to discover new restaurants, brasseries, and other places to share like Bordeaux. My favorite sin? A good glass of wine from our Bordeaux heritage, to accompany local specialties.

LES EPICURIALES

And if I am talking to you today about Bordeaux and its epicurean way of life, it is also to share with you the most expected event of the year: "Les Epicuriales" de Bordeaux.

Les Epicuriales is above all an emblematic event of gastronomy and bistronomy that brings together more than twenty restaurants for two consecutive weeks. The success of "Les Epicuriales?" A single place where all types of restaurants can be found: fast, traditional or top-of-the-range. Organized by the Bordeaux neighbourhood round table and the town hall, this meeting place attracts more than 250,000 visitors each year and thus launches the start of summer events.

The best chefs restaurateurs in the region, located on the Allées de Tourny, specially designed for the occasion, meet to share their love of local, national and international products. Thanks to the creation of ephemeral restaurants, a friendly atmosphere is created around this gathering.

To all epicureans, we look forward to seeing you from 13 to 23 June 2019 for the 25th edition! Open from 11am to 1am, I still advise you to book your table in advance to guarantee you a choice seat.

The new trend : the Do It Yourself

A NEW WAY OF LIFE

Do you know the do it yourself? Because there is nothing more gratifying than the fact of creating a unique piece yourself, I have chosen today to discuss one of my passions with you.

For my part, I have always been attracted to do it yourself because it allows me to discover and learn new things, to be able to create and bring out my DIY soul. I feel so proud of myself at the end of each of my realizations.

As you may have understood, do it yourself means in French doing things yourself. It is ultimately the best way to be able to appreciate the value of each object and the work that each person does.

BETWEEN DISCOVERY AND SHARING

It is for all these different reasons that I propose you today to discover the next place to meet experts and future apprentices of DIY: La Planche. Located in a old body in the heart of the Saint-Michel district of Bordeaux, La Planche is a workplace dedicated to woodworking.

Victor du Peloux and Clément Belin, respectively architect and engineer in the building, opened their workshop around wood on March 30. Their idea is simple: Advise, share their passion around knowledge exchanges.

So I advise you to try your handyman skills and redecorate your home with DIY furniture.

BORDEAUX AND WINE 

The name Bordeaux has always been synonymous with quality and discovery for all wine lovers and experts. Wine brings people together and allows them to share a passion that many shares. During my various travels, I discovered that wine also allows me to learn more about the culture of a country than any other drink.

Wine makes it possible to highlight the richness of men and the richness of nature mixed through a diversity, a know-how that continues to evolve from year to year.

Depending on consumption habits and production methods, a wine will not be tasted in the same way in France as it is abroad.  We will not find the same aromatic complexities or the same bones from one wine to another. Wine allows me to tell a story that evolves over time. The one of the different civilizations that have rocked our world.

VINEXPO BORDEAUX

And if I am talking to you today about wine and Bordeaux, it is also to inform you that Vinexpo will open its doors at the exhibition center in Bordeaux lac from 13 May to 16 May 2019. These three days will be punctuated by numerous events such as master classes on Italian wines or conferences on very current topics such as the impact of climate change on vineyards worldwide.

So many subjects that since its creation in 1981 by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the World Wine and Spirits Exhibition has brought together no less than 45,000 visitors passionate about the wine industry from all over the world. 

We look forward to seeing you in the wonderful city of Bordeaux, which will become the world's wine capital for a few days.

And as Theodora de Banville told us, "At the bottom of the wine lies a soul".

Temporary exhibition at the Marine Museum

AN AQUATIC LOVE

Because of my numerous travels, I met a lot of times the underwater world, it has always been attracting and intriguing me. The human being knows more the lands than the oceans, which are more difficult to reach and to explore. As human beings, the ocean represents a threat for us because we don’t breath under water, but this environment contains wonders. Most people don’t really pay attention to it, which is logical because when we look at it we only see its surface, we don’t suspect all its content and we don’t wonder, we don’t take the time for it. But once that I’m dived into water, it’s the opposite that happens. I forget everything else, I forget the outside, I look at the surface without wondering what is on the other side.

When I was younger, I used to like a lot of diving. Well it hasn’t been always obvious, I needed months to learn how to swim, I was scared of the unknown and of the hazard. But I forced myself and I learned as I could. Then one day my father showed me the scuba diving and I fell in love with it. I discovered a world, almost a universe, where everything was different: the animals, the plants, the ground, the horizon… It was truly unbelievable.

A BLUISH EXHIBITION

I’m telling you all of this because the Marine Museum in Bordeaux is currently housing an exhibition that I find very interesting. Its name is Sous les Mers – Au-delà de l’image (what literally means “Under the Seas – Beyond the image”), and it’s in partnership with National Geographic (which is a geographic/wildlife/scientific magazine, well-known for the quality of its photos among other things). You will see marine animals’ pictures as you will never see, and as I had never seen. The two totally passionate photographers Paul Nicklen and David Doubilet will lead you into an underwater journey from which you might not come back…

A travel, an absolute excursion out of our world… Colours and poetry on the program.

The cine notes festival

IMAGE AND SOUND

Why do I like cinema? Hard to say, there are probably numerous reasons. Cinema allows me to escape. When I get to the cinema, I forget everything that surrounds me. I forget my life to dive into the protagonists’ ones.

Cinema is for me the only way to live a life that isn’t mine, I can be an adventurer who is going to explore the pyramids, an astronaut who will colonize a remote planet in order to save the humankind … But I can also live more tragic stories, feeling my heart sinking and cry.

Cinema is a magnificent form of art which allies image and sound to create a true experience, suffused with emotions and surprises.

ONE MORE TIME

Have you ever been at the Opéra National de Bordeaux? It’s a grandiose building, erected in 1780. It reminds the Greek temples because of its frontage with its big columns and its statues on their top. The inside of the opera house is even more beautiful, the inside stairs even inspired Monsieur Garnier for his opera house in Paris!

What is the link with cinema? You may ask. It’s very simple, from the 7th to the 15th of March will be the second edition of the Ciné-Notes Festival. What is it? It’s a week where different events linked to the cinema will be scheduled. The program includes: a concert in tribute to Bernard Herrmann (one of the greatest films scores composers of history, who composed a lot for Alfred Hitchcock) and a cinema screening with live music (“ciné-concert”) of the movie Vertigo from Alfred Hitchcock (truly exceptional movie) on the Thursday or on the Friday. Then, Saturday the screening of two classics: Marnie then Taxi Driver. And to close, a movie conference presented by Thierry Jousse.

Whether it is to see your classics again or to discover some works that you never had the occasion to see, it is the perfect opportunity!
