Back to | Bastille Day 2022 with CCFL

guillaumedouville

July 18, 2022

On 14 July, more than 100 people gathered to celebrate the French National Day with the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce.

Why is it so important to celebrate French National Day?

 

July 14th is not only a celebration of the freedom of the French nation. It is the only day of the year that unites so many people from so many different social groups. That is why we invited all the members of the French and Lithuanian Chambers of Commerce and like-minded people to come together to celebrate this day. 

It was a great opportunity for business representatives working for the French market to meet, discuss business development opportunities and find French-speaking employees. 

We have invited everyone to come together and celebrate in a non-committal and freedom-filled place where everyone, regardless of their political or religious beliefs, can feel an equal member of the community. The freedom to live and exist is a fundamental right for each of us. 

Special thank to our sponsors that made this wonderful event possible:

 

Merci beaucoup to our members and friends who participated with such a positive energy as we can see on the pictures of the event.

Member News | Lithuanian birch sap in a cocktail glass

June 23, 2022

“Novice bartenders are more concerned with training their memory and memorising the ingredients of classic cocktails, while experienced bartenders are more likely to suffer from creative torment: how to create something new and untried? What can you do to surprise bar-goers who have seen it all? Anything, but certainly not overseas products. For those who mix the world up, the exotic is becoming less and less exotic. Perhaps the answer is just around the corner? Something that has been quietly with us since ancient times?

 

Birch sap is one such revival. For some, it is a nostalgic memory of childhood visits to the countryside. But asphalt kids – like the author of these lines – have only heard of the magical birch elixir… until stylish bottles of sap started to line the shelves of the city’s cafés, boutiques and fashionable bars. Today, gastronomy is increasingly turning to natural flavours found in nature. This trend does not exclude beverages. Bartenders are slowly discovering an unexpected ingredient – Lithuanian birch sap – which is becoming a much sought-after wow element in the usual cocktail. […]”
