Immerse yourself in real french tradition

Event at the Scarabée in Riorges, France

The Charolais Festival, recognized at a national level, takes place this weekend for its 9th annual exposition.  The event spotlights in "Scarabée" the agricultural world through numerous tastings, competitions, presentations and discoveries.

Scarabée is the name of a large hall, where many events take place all year long. Taking part is a real and intense way to immerse in french culture.

This celebration brings together participants from the beef industry and the general public in order to present ways of better recognizing and understanding the role of the farmer, to secure and strengthen the links between different industry participants from producer to consumer, and to promote quality bovine meats, by way of the Charolais breed.

At the École des Trois Ponts, during our special weeks of French and Countryside Walks, we have many chances to see these cows in their native environment.  During mealtimes, we serve dishes using quality ingredients and our Chef Lilian is proud to incorporate Charolais beef in multiple variations: in stews, filets….
