The many stands that filled Bryant Park this weekend provided one with the opportunity to explore the French culture through lifestyle, technology, fashion, beauty, cuisine, wine and spirits, tourism, culture, children and fun.
They weren't kidding when they advertised that, "the French of the world have united to give you a complete sensory experience of their motherland" -- a sensory experience was indeed provided, and not only for my taste buds, which ventured into the delicious land of French classics like macarons and delicious wine .
For the more adventurous folk, there was "le meilleur de la gastronomie française": brandade de morue, charcuterie, seafood from Marseille, among dozens of other delicious options.
And where do you leave behind the adorable kids posing with berets and mustaches beside an enormous 'butter-filled' recreation of La Tour Eiffel? - Or the dozens of French Bulldogs?
All in all, what a wonderfully delicious taste of France!
