Every year, we look forward to The France Show. This huge fair is dedicated to showcasing the best of the best from across the channel, from scrumptious cheeses to property for sale. The show has everything a Francophile could ever want to see… including our very own Eurotunnel Le Shuttle stand. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s what you missed.

Bonjour from Olympia London

The France Show was held at Olympia London, between 29th and 31st January. With so much to see and do at the show, we could have spent many more days exploring. Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Chef Guy Wolley and Susy Atkins (wine columnist for the Sunday Telegraph) cooked up a French dinner party meal in just half an hour.
  • Cancan dancers showed us their best moves.
  • Pétanque (similar to British bowls) games were held.
  • Chef Christine Vidal showed us how to cook some delicious dishes from the Provence region.
  • An information session was heldon the Lacs et Gorges du Verdon region (the Verdon Canyon, the Sainte Croix lake, the Haut-Var and Provence).
  • Comedian Ian Moore gave a humorous performance about living in the Loire Valley, where he has lived for many years with his wife.
  • Food vendors showcased the most delicious French produce imaginable.
