Apparently France's favourite snack has traditionally been the "baguette jambon beurre", the croque monsieur appealing only to time strapped tourists on the Champs Elysees. We were not really aware that our hosts had time for snacks in between the p'tit dej and the pause de midi.
But now it appears that the burger has overtaken the jambon beurre as the nation's favourite snack, and not just at McDonalds, but in sandwich bars everywhere. Naturally the gallic version is more gourmet than the Big Mac, but we at Taglines will still be taking our coffee and croissants for elevenses - we are not burger folk, gourmet or not.
