Between “Chabadabada” and lobsters, Macron and Biden compete for attention

Emmanuel Macron offers a vinyl of the soundtrack of Claude Lelouch’s film (which is itself part of the trip) A man and a woman, Jill Biden chooses the best American cheeses for dinner… The French president’s state trip sees the two countries compete for small attentions. The Elysée announced that Emmanuel Macron would offer Thursday to his American counterpart a Christofle cup, a famous French house of goldsmithery and tableware which accompanied, among other things, meals on board the prestigious liner “Normandy”.

If the White House has not yet revealed which gifts will be given to President Macron by Joe Biden on Thursday, the wife of the American president, Jill Biden, has already revealed the decor and the menu of the gala dinner.

An Oregon blue and American sparkling rosé

Dinner will be served under a large tent in the gardens of the White House, on tables laden with candlesticks and flowers in the colors of the two countries. Will be served: lobster – 200 live crustaceans made their last trip to Washington – beef, squash from the White House vegetable garden, and an orange cake, among others. But also – the First Lady particularly insisted on this point – American cheeses. Including a blue from Oregon (northwest) which was the first American production to win the World Cheese Championships in 2019.

The toasts will be served with an American sparkling rosé wine, in glasses made in France. And the evening will be hosted by Jon Batiste, a jazzman from Louisiana. Emmanuel Macron will visit Friday in this former province ceded by France to the United States in 1803.
