Le Taste of France Show in New York City

I had the pleasure of attending Le Taste of France on September 29th with The Marta Report and it was a great time. We were a bit concerned about weather, but it held out nicely on Saturday which was great. This event was giving all proceeds to Action Against Hunger which is a wonderful cause. 

The set up had around 78  booths with fabulous food, spirits and products from France 
My favorite, Financier Pastries, was there so I was quite happy indeed. My mom was as well as she had some mini eclairs and financiers to enjoy when I got home!! 
the blue oven at the cooking demo area was to die for 
tasty soup was poured into these mini pumpkins, great french presentation 
homemade nougat from Provence en Boite in Brooklyn was amazing 
the lovely folks at D'artagnan
making these amazing sandwiches 
gorgeous teas with packaging from Le Palais des Thes'
the chefs chatting away 
french music played as you shopped and enjoyed the cuisine 
yes, that is peanut butter and jelly from Bonne Maman Preserves 
hard to decide what to try at Cuisine Solutions
traditional bouillabaisse from Intercontinal Hotel 
champagne is always needed at a French event, the bigger the better !! 

we had to have a glass of the bubbly, of course 
Petanque games seemed to be enjoyed by many 
art exhibit was very cool and great talents shown 
apple tarts made to perfection 

Jacques Torres apple pie was fabulous 
the French Bulldog Rescue was there, selling buttons for their organization and kisses for a dollar 
these dogs were quite the hams and just plain old adorable !! A great cause to support. 

There were over 5,000 folks who attended this great event which helps a good cause, Action Against Hunger. I would like to thank Nicolas, at Le Taste of France, for providing me with (2) tickets to attend the event. I have a feeling next year's event will be even bigger and better !!
