Mastering the Art of French Eating: Lessons in Food and Love from a Year in Paris - Ann Mah

Page 1, paragraph 1.

 

I'm not a voracious carnivore, but there's something about being in Paris that makes me want to sink my teeth into a bloody piece of beef.  Perhaps it's the French paradox, the seductive theory that a diet rich in cheese, meat, and red wine actually lowers cholesterol.  Perhaps it's watching all those sexy French women purse their lipsticked mouths while slicing through a juicy chop.

 

So begins a chapter dedicated to Steak Frites.  *drool*
