French food aficionados also had the opportunity to try a range of authentic foods from leading exporters, including dairy products from Brittany-based specialist Payson Breton; goat’s cheese by Soignon; milk products by Régilait and gourmet recipes by Maille the mustard & vinegar expert. For those with a sweet tooth, French Bakery and La Patisserie des Reves had baked traditional pastries, including crêpe suzette, macarons and mille-feuille.

Our attendance figures are up once again, making this another record year, all that remains to be said is, ‘merci beaucoup et à bientôt’, we look forward to seeing you next year!”
