Francophiles rejoice. On September 29 & 30, 2012, Le Taste of France will take place at Hudson River Park’s Pier 54. Why you should attend…lots of fabulous French Chefs have gotten together to benefit Action Against Hunger. Chefs from both Maîtres Cuisiniers de France and l’Académie Culinaire de France will be participating by showcasing some of their signature dishes from various regions in France.
There will also be live French Music; Pétanque (a national French pastime – the winner is he/she who drinks least rose – at least when you play with my friends); a “Marché aux Puces” (flea market) AND a French Bulldog Show.
