Why does French food taste so much better than ours?

Jump to last reply

OMG, we are back from Paris and France (went to Bayeux too) for almost two weeks and I cannot stop talking about the food over there, or thinking, dreaming about it. It is hard to explain to someone how the food over there is all the best ever: The best omelette, the best chocolate crepe, the best sandwiches, the best bread, the best vegetables and fruit in the market (they look like pictures and taste, eh, the best), the best cookes (the macaron), the best duck, the best salads, on and on. Why is this? Are we heathens in the kitchen?

And now that we are back stateside, how can we replicate their food? I mean, the experience has changed my food preferences and expectations. Problem is, I can't get their food over here...or have you all figured out how to replicate the French food over here? I am going crazy wanting to go back there so I can try and eat more of their food!!!

Anyone else suffer from this?
