'A Taste of France' at the Ambassador's Residence
" His Excellency, his wife Brigitte and their Residence staff did a fantastic job "

The Bailliage held a dinner in collaboration with the Ambassador of France, His Excellency Christian Ramage, in his Residence.

The event was a participation in “Goût de France” (A Taste of France), a worldwide celebration of French gastronomy. This time the specific theme was “Provence”.

His Excellency, his wife Brigitte and their Residence staff did a fantastic job in treating us to the culinary delights from the region. The Ambassador also provided us with a delicious selection of French wines and cheeses.

After a reception featuring Champagne Piper-Heidsieck we took our places for dinner.
