Food Critics Pans French Restaurant Food and the 'Fait Maison' Logo...

Jump to last reply

in today's NY Times - Op Ed page - famous restaurant critic takes French restaurants to task for caving into mass-produced and things like using frozen foods and the campaign by the French government where it oaunched its "fait maison" logo (homemade - using only foods fixed fresh on site - now seen on signs outside restaurants to signify those in compliance.

But there are some serious exemptions and loop holes, the critic says. He also says the French themselves now eschew small restaurants and now favor going to chains.

Ah the death of the French reputation - he says now Italy and even Denmark are more of culinary prestige.
