Gary is a dual American and French citizen, having grown up local to the Trenton area. He is specialized in travel, culture and touring in France and is the author of five travel guides in addition to many articles, essays and short stories of travel abroad. For our discussion, Gary will speak about food culture in France, both the cliché and the reality, and about his recent research into “bistro life” in Paris. He’ll whet our appetite for travel to France with stories about the owners, chefs and patrons of the dwindling yet living institution that is the old-fashion neighborhood bistro. 

A post-screening dinner option is available to join Gary at Anton’s at the Swan in Lambertville, where you can discuss your upcoming France travel plans.
