La vie franglophone started in 2009, when I moved to Paris to study French culture and to research le discours gastronomique (that is, the how/when/why/where… of talking -and especially writing- about food in France). In general, I’m interested in “tangible manifestations of culture” – language, art, music, festivals, food…
I left Paris for New York in August 2010, only to (happily!) discover that NYC is teeming with les Français. After a year of working in the field of French culture, I decided to pursue my passion for food writing, and have been working in the world of culinary culture ever since. To see what I’ve been up to since, visit www.carlydefilippo.com.
