French Gastronomic Fair & “Belle Époque, Gatsby” | 110th Anniversary
An excellent fair! What a great way to wrap up the consécutive fairs we've been vending these months. The Gastronomic Fair was very well organised and communicated, we met many new and old faces who absolutely loved the local products and Nicolas Vivin "Cheese Cutting" demonstration also had a nice turnout. Big congratulations to the team at Alliance Française de Bangkok and to our own team who worked so hard at the events and teams who held down the fort out of our 2 stores.
