Made in France: The Sky's the Limit

From food to home goods, fashion and even socks and underwear, le made in France – sorry, le fabriqué en France – is in! Discover our feature on “patriotic purchasing,” a way to reduce outsourcing and to preserve jobs and know-how that has become increasingly popular among French consumers and politicians alike. Also in this issue, take a look at the inner workings of the Daniel Boulud empire (the French chef recently opened his ninth New York location!), and read how Vice President Kamala Harris, like Barack Obama and John Kerry before her, was denigrated by U.S. conservatives for her taste for French things – in this particular case, copper pots!

DANIEL BOULUD

The Recipe for an Empire

Daniel Boulud was born near Lyon and has become a culinary star in New York. In forty years, the chef has built a group of restaurants – including Daniel, two Michelin stars – and gourmet markets that have remarkably resisted the pandemic.

CULTURE

MARSEILLE

The Many Faces of the Mediterranean Museum

Nicknamed the “Chicago of France,” the former nerve center of the French Connection has seen its reputation tarnished by gang warfare and deadly political paralysis. In its search for a new identity, Marseille has placed culture at the heart of the city. A highly effective strategy.

FRANCE'S PAST IN COLOR

Whenever he isn’t busy editing images from
a photoshoot for Dior or Givenchy, Sébastien de Oliveira travels back through time. This seasoned colorist breathes fresh energy into old, black-and- white photos, closing the gap between us and the Belle Epoque, World War I, and 1940s America.

BEYOND THE SEA

ROSAMOND BERNIER

A Life Lived for Art

In Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, Tilda Swinton plays J.K.L. Berensen, an eccentric, erudite writer inspired by Rosamond Bernier (1916-2016). The film offers the chance to take a closer look at this journalist and lecturer who, in the name of art, built bridges between the United States and France, her native country and her adoptive home.
