Eat like a .. French
Today we're gonna fly to one of my favorite countries.
The reason why I love it the most is because of its cuisine.
French people really enjoy the food, so I decided to fly with you to France and live a traditional french day together.
As usual, we begin with an overview of the meals.
The three meals of the day are breakfast, lunch and dinner. The meals often include bread, that’s why they rarely snack.
Linguistically the word of breakfast in french is Petit-Déjeuner which literally means a “small lunch”
That “small lunch” breakfast starts with a cafe au lait or a fresh orange juice with french bread like baguette or tartine and sweet spreads like jam ,chocolate or butter. Croissants are also a popular breakfast dish for French people.
The French like to dip their tartines or croissants into their coffee.
At noon, between 11:30 to 2:00 pm a usual French lunch will include an appetizer (une entrée), such as a mixed salad (Try Nicoise salad) , soup (Try Lobster Bisque), terrine or pâté; main course, (le plat principal), choice of beef, chicken, or fish, with potatoes, rice, pasta or vegetables; cheese course (Try Ratatouille or Boeuf bourguignon ) and a dessert (Try Chocolate Crepes or Tarte Tatin)
Usually, people working in offices have simple salads or cheese sandwiches, and sit down for at least 45 minutes to enjoy their food.
Dinner during the week usually starts at 7:00 pm. A typical weeknight dinner in France may look like a small starter such as shredded carrots, radishes, charcuterie, a simple main dish (grilled chicken, steak or salmon, served with potatoes, pasta, or green beans), and yogurt with a piece of fruit, and a cookie or piece of chocolate.
On weekends they like to go out to eat and they are still seen going to restaurants as a special treat on weekends to enjoy the experience. A formal dinner in a restaurant will involve much heavier dishes for starters, mains and dessert.
You want to eat like french? You need to consider mealtime a pleasure and a chance to come together with others just like them
