Note Culturelle

Pour Nick Frost

- In France, people usually buy their groceries at small specialty shops rather than supermarkets because the food is higher quality.

- French meals often consist of many courses (for lunch and dinner, not breakfast). Some meals have 9 courses. Eggs are mostly eaten at dinner, and rarely at breakfast. The main courses of meals are the meats.

- In France, meals are usually used to celebrate friendship and special occasions. New Years you usually spend with friends, and Christmas and Birthdays are generally family occasions.
