I WANT MY BEIGNET

Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, in this “Week of Francophonie”, how could we not go to Louisiana, and more precisely to New Orleans…

The night of the Duduk

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, I have a confession to make: I love to be surprised. In a good way, of course, we have enough bad surprises in life not to wish for more. I love the Chef’s selection in a Sushi restaurant, the surprise screening in a festival, and not knowing what’s under the Christmas tree. I just love good surprises. Especially when you really have no idea that you’re in for an excellent one...

Idea Catcher

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, in this week’s show, we have a long story about the Night Of Ideas, this yearly event instigated by the French government in 2016 after the COP-21.

Remember the COP-21? The Paris Accords? Everyone holding hands singing (sing Queen in your head) “We Will… We Will… SaveThePlanet… SaveThePlanet…” (yes, I know, it doesn’t work as well as Rock You, but hey…) All those heads of governments decided to find a way to end climate change. Good times...

Sundance Kid

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, I have a confession to make: I am a Sundance Kid. Oh, my youth is way behind me; and those who saw me trying to ski at Sundance resort know that I don’t mean it in a sporting way. What I mean is that I love the Sundance Film festival. I have not missed one edition in the last 23 years. I’ve seen about 500 films (or even more) in the theaters of Park City; I recorded at least 500 interviews there, I’ve consumed dozens of juicy steaks at Grub’s Steak House (if you know Park City, you know what I’m talking about) and spent a lot of time with a lot of French people on the white snowy peaks of Utah...

Start Me Up

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, I know “startup” is not a French expression. I know there is probably nothing more American than the concept of startups. The idea of a few brave souls who would give everything to transform it into a phenomenon, knowing that only a very, very, few succeed, matched with a lot of enthusiasm. Yeah, nothing more American than the concept of a startup…

French Haute Cuisine

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, let me first wish you the best for 2019… Health, fortune, and love for you all the ones you love, of course, but also the best in cinema, theatre, music, art, food, the best in culture in many forms. And if it has the slightest French accent, it will be in Rendez-Vous d’Amérique. Let’s start the New Year by talking about one of my favorite subjects: food…

Best of the year

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, if I heard it right during the 3,259 hours I spent in the different LA malls trying to find the right present for the right people (yeah, I’m this kind of guy who still prefers spending five hours looking for a parking spot at The Grove than ordering gifts on the net. I know, I know…), so if I got the song right: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year...”

Classical Music Lovers

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, I am sometimes a lucky guy. Not always, but sometimes…

RVA: Street Art for Mankind

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, in the new episode of Rendez-vous d’Amérique, you will see a story about a very special exhibition in New York. This exhibition is not in a museum or in one of the beautiful and very trendy Manhattan galleries, this exhibition is just in the center of the world, in the walls of the United Nations building...

Veteran's Day

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear friends, francophiles, francovorous and francophageous, I have a confession to make. Since the beginning of the show, 9 years ago, I have been a huge fan of The Walking Dead. Yes, I have no shame in that I’ve been an adult for a while now but I have never missed one episode...
