#NEWMAG The July issue of France-Amérique – our Bastille Day & Gastronomy Issue – is here! 🇫🇷 🇺🇸

As we near le quatorze juillet, France’s national day, let us drink to la Bastille – this is the title of our editorial this month. The old Parisian citadel is long gone, stormed on July 14, 1789, and toppled the very next day, but its spirit endures in France and abroad.

Also in this issue, discover how the French adopted the Mexican taco and made it into “a fattening Franken-food” named le tacos, and why Coca-Cola is suing its “French grandfather.” Finally, don’t miss our profile of French chef Laëtitia Rouabah, “Alain Ducasse’s leading lady in New York,” and American director Wes Anderson, whose latest project, "The French Dispatch," will premiere at Cannes this month.

Happy Bastille Day & bonne lecture! ❤️
