This month the French Winophiles group is pondering what French style is all about. For me, French style has a lot to do with how the French approach food, wine, and eating. The French prefer quality over quantity, no food is “off limits,” but moderation is key, they eat with the seasons and savor what each season offers, cooking is a pleasure, and dinner is eaten at the table usually with family or friends and leisurely….slowly. The French like to have multiple courses for dinner with smaller portions for each course. Because they eat slowly, they are tasting the food and appreciating the flavors. Eating is not just a necessity, but a way of joyful living.
