Ya'll?? You must be from the southern part of Northern Ireland.
But to the important stuff. In my humble opinion, French food is, for the most part, superb - that is if you don't mind tons of butter and cream and other wonderful and rich artery-clogging ingredients. In the time I lived in France (and visited regularly while living in Germany) I decided it didn't matter because I thought the food was too good to pass on. My logic was that at least I'd die gastronimcally satisfied
Oh yes, and more than a little overweight. Still, happy times, and I'm thinner now to boot.
On the other side of the coin, the French tend to eat certain things I didn't think should be eaten - at least at first. However, the escargot were excellent and after a bit I didn't think of them as garden snails any longer. My brother however always believed that having escargot was too much like trying to eat a pencil eraser soaked in garlic butter. What's to be expected; he's a barbarian.
Have a grand holiday and do post some pictures when you return to the "little island."
Oh, I almost forgot. I had an English (actually a transplanted Irish) girlfriend while living in England who told me her uncle was a tail gunner on a milk float in Dublin! Should I have believed her?
