Gastronomy - Do the French still deliver? part 1

The traditional French sit-down meal gets top nods from Unesco, listed as one of humanity's "intemporal" cultural treasures. But sadly in France, the midday meal is less and less a sit-down affair. So what's so great these days about French food and French eating habits? Still quite a lot argues François Picard’s panel in the France 24 Debate.

The guests:

  • Edward CODY, Paris Correspondent, The Washington Post
  • Adrian MOORE, Journalist, Blogger (http://adrianmoore.blogspot.com/), Co-translator of Le Fooding Guide
  • Astrid De T'SERCLAES, Journalist, Femina, Expert on lifestyle trends

Duplex de NYC –

  • Layla DEMAY, Co-director of the book collection Les Pintades, Co-author of Les Pintades passent à la casserole, Paris & NY en cuisine
