The French Culture Nights is proud to celebrate the release of “Les Pintades passent à la casserole”, a unique travel guidebook about food and gastronomy by widely acclaimed culinary wizzards "Les Pintades". The book is an insightful exploration into our eating habits and doubles as a cookbook. Layla Demay will be present at the event to sign and introduce the book to New Yorkers (co-creator with Laure Watrin of the book series).
Feather Night will be held at Opia, a glamorous lounge with high-ceilings located on the second floor of the Renaissance Hotel in Midtown.
During the evening, Moroccan-born artist Pierre Henry Guerard will present his latest bird paper sculptures specially created for our event, transforming Opia into a surreal poultry-yard in the heart of Manhattan.
DJ Madi and drummer Manu Leger, with 10 years of experience evolving through various musical styles such as jazz, African beats, reggae, funk and rock will set the mood with their French and international beats.
