Here is the solution to becoming a true cordon blue, shine during your meal with family or friends, and introduce your guests to new tastes, while learning French. ...
Renowned brands of ready-to-wear, leather goods, perfume, or art deco, are also available. Why not a session of « shopping à la française » (shopping French style)?
