With all the wonderful gastronomic delights in France, eating meat is pretty much a must if you want to sample the best cuisine the country has to offer. I’ve never been a vegetarian, but I’ve never been crazy about meat either. I’d have steak from time to time when my parents would cook it growing up but it was never on my list of favorite foods and I’d never order it when out to eat. Fish, chicken and other options just seemed more appealing. But then I moved to France and that has all changed. We had meat four times last week. Yes, it’s that good and I can say that steak has made it onto my Top 5 favorite dinners list. Is French meat really that different? Yah.
Once upon a time, I arrived in France thinking I could speak halfway decent French and knew enough about the French way of doing things that I’d be right at home. But as time went on and I started to interact with more French people, go out to eat and go about my day-to-day life, I realized that I didn’t know as much as I had thought.
