    The closest I come to French cuisine is when I have fries with my burger, and that suits me fine.

    National Lampoon’s European Vacation: The Griswolds are in a French café. In the kitchen we see cooks microwaving frozen dinners, putting them on plates, sticking a little French flag in it.

    While the smiling waiter talks to them in French. By the subtitles, we can see it is all insults.

    Café. How did that little accent get above the e?

    A cook several years go joked that french cooking was developed to make stale fish taste good.

    My internet program was updated to correct most of my bad spelling. It also provide the accent on the word café.

    Pretty close. Came from castle cooks (ousted by the Revolution) trying to make a living from battle kill and Momma’s good peasant cooking.
    .
    ie: Canard a’ l’orange made from ducks poached from the neighbors poultry. And the massively moldy oranges you can’t afford to throw out? Mold can be scraped off, then the rest can be saved by preserving in a honey syrup, just like original marmalade.

    When my family went to France, we had an outrageously underpriced feast. Twice the price would have been reasonable.

    Not all Chicago places have that attitude. We knew a few good places when we lived there. Unfortunately, too many waitstaff did have such attitudes (and service)—but then, so did many in New York, and other larger cities.

    @ Stephen Gilberg, my parents once had that experience in Switzerland. They ordered what they thought (and the prices seemed to corroborate) was a salad, soup and main course. They got—three good-sized dinners!

    At least the prices were good! I prefer mostly to cook at home but I like it when my lover takes me to a really elegant place and the food is good. He last took me to one that he has taken me before and everything was so good that I ate more than I otherwise would. It WAS in Chicago, too. Of course we also went to Medieval Times (where food is just edible) and had meals at some discount stores while shopping but even so-so food leftovers can liven up the scrambled eggs for the next morning.
