I am such a fan of French. I’m an American, but French is my second language. So when I was asked to translate a French article into English, it was a no-brainer. I have been a huge fan of French since reading a book by Edith Wharton about Paris in the Eighties, where she described the city as the most vibrant one of all the world’s capitals.
Like it or not, we live in a world where English is not the default language. The fact is, we have a lot of things in common with French, including a love of French food, drinking, and movies. French movies have been the stuff of the English-speaking world for a long time, and that is no coincidence. We are the second most spoken language in the world and the English-speaking world is the third most important (after Chinese and Japanese).
The French are famous for their beautiful, refined, classical, and classical-y style of music. We’re also a nation that loves, well, French food, so it is no surprise that the French love food in general. In fact, we are the most gastronomically obsessed nation on Earth.
The French love to cook and cook a lot, and they also love to eat a lot. So when we eat French food, we tend to cook a lot of it. We have the same problem with Italian food as we do with fish, pasta, and pizza. We love it, but we don’t cook it enough.
I can’t remember the exact words I got to say when I saw the trailer, but I figured it’s probably a good thing your readers are already reading it.
The French love to fish, and they also have a lot of fish that they like at night. They’re not that fond of fish. They’re not that easy to get to as far as the rest of the world. Also, they love to fish. So if you’re a French cook, you know that you’re not going to get to the next town (or even the next big city) by just watching French food.
There are a lot of factors that go into deciding what to eat that I could talk about here. What you eat is one of them. And a lot of it is personal taste and personality. When I was growing up in France, I was surrounded by tons of French food and I knew it all, even though I was far from being born a French chef. It always rubbed me the wrong way when I discovered that there was a “French” food.
