Some­times it seems France has a fes­ti­val for just about any­thing and every­thing (and why not?). La Fête du Pi­ment in Espelette, a fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing pep­per is one such ex­am­ple. The fes­ti­val has been run­ning since 1968 – a time when the condi­ment al­ready had a place in the Basque town’s lo­cal cui­sine. As the years went by, the fes­ti­val reached a wider au­di­ence and it now wel­comes over 20,000 vis­i­tors from far and wide. This gourmet gath­er­ing is held ev­ery year over the last week­end in Oc­to­ber, and this year takes place from 28-29 Oc­to­ber.
