Taste of France Draws Almost 100,000 Visitors in New York
Nearly 100,000 people gathered in New York City’s Bryant Park on September 28 and 29 for the second Taste of France Show.
Billed as the world’s largest event dedicated to France, it gathered French leaders and representatives to offer an image of France that is steeped in tradition and thoroughly innovative.
No less than nine French sectors were represented: lifestyle, technology, beauty, cuisine, wine and spirits, tourism, culture, children, and one called simply “fun.”
The event took place under the patronage of French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and Junior Minister for the Food Industry Guillaume Garot, both of whom attended the weekend’s festivities in person.
François Delattre, Ambassador of France to the United States, also joined the delegation of officials touring the convention. Their visit took place in conjunction with the opening of the United Nations General Assembly.
