On French Food

with 2 comments

I had heard that food, along with most things, is more exprensive in France; and this is largely true.

But when a country really appreciates something, they get very good at making it.

Decent bottle of wine: under 3 Euro

Hunk of Brie twice the size of my hand: under 3 euro

6-pack of good German beer: under 3 euro

10-pack of mediocre French beer: under 3 euro

The best croissant you’ve ever had, plus apricot and chocolat varieties of the same: under 1 euro
