Just Katie Posted August 19, 2008 Share Posted August 19, 2008 For a country who proclaims itself to be the culinary leader of the world, I find the food on offer here total and utter shit in comparison to UK. Yes we have the wonderful markets (no more wonderful that UK though) but these are all sold out and packed away before dinner, when I am still in work. We also have the wonderful butchers who charge wonderful prices..........lamb at 32 euro per kilo, OK I live in Paris but please enlighten me what you pay locally. The times of the markets and prices in the butchers lead me to the supermarkets where I am met by limp lettuce, spongey carrots and pruned up apples. What a load of crap. In UK I like occasionally like to use Seeds of Change, Lloyd Grossman and Birds Eye products for a quick evening meal after work but here? Foget it everything here seems to be full of E's and I would love someone to disagree with me and show me similar products in France. I cannot even find a yoghurt without E's. This had led me to cook in mass production. I have some lovely curries in the freezer made of chicken. and lamb in gravy from NZ lamb. Today, I went to the supermarket to get the ingredients for a good old spag bol. Brought the mince home and discovered it is full of E's [+o(]Also, there were two dogs fighting in the cheese isle.
