The French slur on Olympic cusine - Bites Back!

The last couple of days its been all over the news, how the French President Jacques Chirac's cusine comments have fired up the Anglo-French feud - a cold war over cusine.

The French President was quoted as saying "We can't trust people who have such bad food," and of course the British Tabloid have taken it one step further...

"Don't talk Crepe, Jacques!" - The Sun.
"Chirac's bad taste jokes on Britain plunge relations into the freezer," - the Daily Mail.
"A man full of bile is not fit to pronounce on food." Egon Ronay (food critic)

But its over, and the french have to eat their hats. Already the jokes are coming in.


Being a food blogger i would have to say that i dont know any French chefs! We all know the English ones, Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein, Nigella, etc.... The only French one I know is Anthony Bourdain, but he works in his own Brasserie Les Halles, a bistro? in NY.

Anyway... Sucked In froggies!

of course this entry would have never happened if Australia was in contention for another olympics...
