It’s not every day that prestigious French chefs participate in a New England harvest festival. But this Sunday at Lexington’s Wilson Farm, four master chefs, so designated by the exclusive Maitres Cuisiniers de France, will do just that. The chefs will introduce the new book “Master Chefs of France: The Cookbook” ($40) and offer tastes of four of the recipes they contributed to the book. Stunning photographs taken by Alan “Battman” Batt grace the pages, which feature about 150 recipes from 75 Master Chefs of France who now live in North America. Raymond Ost, executive chef of Wilson Farm and formerly chef-owner of Sandrine’s in Cambridge, will welcome fellow French chefs Jacky Robert, of Petit Robert Bistro and Ma Maison, and Jean-Louis Gerin and Andre Burnier, both of New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vt.
While grown-ups nibble on French-style delicacies, the kids can enjoy games, including pumpkin bowling, pumpkin painting, and a doughnut-eating contest. The farm’s kitchen will also be offering samples of the winning recipe from the customer recipe competition. It’s bound to be a fun and tasty time for all. Bon appetit!
Wilson Farm’s Harvest Festival and “Master Chefs of France: The Cookbook” book signing and tasting is Sunday, Nov. 12, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wilson Farm is located at 10 Pleasant St., Lexington, 781-862-3900, www.wilsonfarm.com
