Henry Ford said: “You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars.”
Lately it has been all about stars: from Thomas Pesquet joining the NASA team to the International Space Station, to Chef Paul Ducasse preparing four-star menus for the astronauts, French films being recognized at the Oscars,
and last but not least our Bastille Day celebration starring La Savoie, for which we need…what else…star prizes for our online auction!
Enthusiasm is in the Comité Tricolore’s DNA!

Food In Space
French astronaut Thomas Pesquet and the NASA crew will be orbiting for 6 months for the sake of science and humanity, so the least France can do is offer them…a good meal.
Alain Ducasse has been working with the European Space agency for several years to create menus that can be shared in space. Not so easy when you must make sure they are not too liquid and would just spill out and float around, or too grainy with small particles that could damage the space station’s hardware.
Alain Ducasse works alongside Thierry Marx, and Raphaël Haumont, a physical chemistry professor at the French Center of Culinary Innovation to develop new recipes.

At the 93rd Oscars ceremony, French author Florian Zeller won Best Adaptation for the film “The Father”, for which Anthony Hopkins received the Best Actor award.
The movie is about coming to grips with the loss of memory, for the person who experiences it and for his family. Poignant is the best way to describe it. Watch the trailer here.
French producer Alice Dovard won the best short documentary film for “Colette” which was part of a virtual reality video game called “Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond”. The game is set in World War II, and was developed by Oculus which is owned by Facebook. Colette is a 90-year-old former resistant who travels with a young history enthusiast to the concentration camp in Germany where her brother died.
Nicolas Becker won the Best Sound award for the film “Sound of Metal”. The film was nominated for six Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor; Best Supporting Actor; Best Original Screenplay – and got the Oscars for Best Film Editing and Best Sound!
The film is about a punk-metal drummer who starts to lose his hearing. Nicolas Becker uses sound to makes us actually feel what it is to be deaf.
