And that brings me to something I have learned about myself. As much as I like to cook and eat, I don't pay nearly enough attention to the quality of food as I should.
Where does it come from? How was it grown? When and how was it harvested? How was it transported? How long has it been in the market? What measures have been taken to help maintain freshness? These are questions the French cook asks every day and the answers are reflected in the beautifully presented delicious meals they prepare. I loved the food in France!
We have been aware of this attention to food in Italy, Croatia and Greece, but the French take it to a whole new level.
École Militaire stood behind us, many of its buildings abandonded. Don't you know those walls could tell a story or two?
