Camera, check. Passes, check. Even as we entered the lawns of Valley View hotel, we were in for a surprise as the red and blue colors of the French greeted us. It was “Soiree Francaise” , the French Food Festival and French concert, and we were all excited!
Lo and behold ‘Soiree Francaise’!
just us and the moon.(though the light in the pic is a focus light)
The mood was set, as people from many a nationality convened to experience a wonderful French evening. The true essence of France was recreated here, in Manipal, with a tantalizing four course menu, accompanied by French artists Marine Futin, Pierrick Rossi & Anatole.

The food just got better with each course, with dessert being an amazing dark chocolate mousse, which left us wanting for more. The music was a feast to the ears, with the artistes playing a mixture of French and English songs. ‘Cherry Tree’ was an instant hit amongst the gathering.
An exotic blend wine, dine and music truly made it a night to remember.
