    Okay, so back to French food. Baguettes are great, croissant even greater. Amazing how a simple ham sandwich on a baguette purchased from a street vendor in Quimper cam taste like a five star meal. It does. Love fruit tartes though I never learned their French name...amazingly Wegman's food stores sell them here. Cheeses (Brie) and all the sausages come to mind as being high on the to die for list.
    Coq au vin has got to be up there in what I love in the way of French cuisine. I usually cook stews and often will simply cook in the French style, i.e., wine, spices, etc. Don't have to follow a recipe. I once cooked a chicken and mushroom stew for my in-laws (French) and they said I must be French by how good it was.
    I love snails and loved watching that video Seb. Unfortunately I watched it at work and am drooling all over the place.

    I don't know if this done anywhere else in the world but I often go to open markets in France and see a chicken rotisserie rack that holds about a dozen chickens multiple spits, one over the other, heat coming from the back of the "stove." At the bottom are potatoes catching all the drippings from the chickens as they cook. Give me one chicken, a bunch of potatoes and a bottle of bordeaux and I'll be happy for a few hours. (I will want more.)
    If that isn't knowing how to cook, I don't know what is.

    For anyone that doesn't like French cooking I give you this challenge.
    1.) Go to France
    2.) Go to any town
    3.) Say the word charcuterie over and over until you are directed to one
    4.) Enter
    5.) Inhale
    6.) Find something and eat it

    If you can do this without enjoying the moment I will pay for your ticket.

                    When you asked this ,I was painting art works,and it was a bit late indeed...
                    I think about the description you gave from the "rotisserie", the outside electric BBQ for chicken and potatoes .A quality chicken with "patates sautées " costs something like 15/20 Euros..
                    I remember the same ones in Lisboa,another place for excellent food.And wines..
                    You made a so vivid account of this that I felt I was on the market place on a Sunday,in Rouen ,surrounded by hords of bobo's drinking white wine and eating saucisson's slices,with their bikes close to them,talking politics and how it is hard to be a leftie with such a president..
                    You need to be more active there...

                            That looks like the Volksfest or the chicken on wheels grill wagons here. The French ones are much better while they surrender their flesh much easier.

                                Depends on the flesh we're talking about here...
