Hi and I am just back from a flying visit to some good friends in Bordeaux in the south of France. We had a lovely trip with much wining and dining. It was really interesting to notice how French women eat.
To begin with all glass sizes and plates are normal or even small. No one talked about diets but tried a smallish portion of everything. But no one overate! The food was relished and remarked upon and eaten slowly with lots of conversation.Our Sunday lunch lasted nearly four hours!
And the wine was poured in small measures to taste and savour, chosen to complement the food. No one got tipsy or loud and despite being a party of 8 we probably only had a few bottles between us - but then it was exceptionally good wine!
I have returned resolved to try the French way of eating as I certainly have a few pounds to lose!
PS Tomorrow we‘re off to Scotland to visit my daughter- haggis and whisky next!
