It was a beautiful weekend to be a flâneur, but you didn’t have to pretend to be debonair as you strolled past the booths of name brands such as Perrier Jouët, L’atelier du chocolat, Président, Financier Patisseries and Delpeyrat exhibiting at this past weekend’s Taste of France in Bryant Park.
It was the show’s Second Annual event after the widely received patronage of last year’s event held at Pier 54. The event’s organizers thought of everything to capture a taste of the “Art de Vivre” or Lifestyle in France, from beauty, cuisine, cinema and technology to French kisses, as patrons lined up for a turn to make out with well-bred Frenchies.
So, whether you were the type to lay on the lawn and listen to the line-up of live performances, or stroll the promenade past the Eiffel Tower sculpted entirely of butter and sample patisseries and wine, it was an exercise in the art of living. And to the French, c’est trés chic!
Taste of France is a non-profit event designed to promote friendship, awareness and tourism to France.
