What do the French eat?
The French love a quick and easy breakfast that consists of croissants and slices of bread. For drinks they love coffee or tea and children usually drink hot chocolate. Lunch is often a time of socialising and is known as the 1-hour mid day break but in some smaller towns where work is not as busy, lunch is known as the 2-hour break. It usually consists of sandwiches followed by a dessert. Dinner often consists of three courses: an entrée which is usually soup, a middle course which consists of salad and a cheese platter, and maybe fresh fruit or yoghurt and a final course which is often meat served with rice or pasta. For desert they eat crepes, soufflé, custard, chocolate and tarts. They also love their wine.

Well, obviously, they eat what they feel like; but the CLASSIC French breakfast is a simple affair based on fresh bread. Note the word FRESH. The French favour a light…, white, crusty bread, which goes stale in only a few hours. The cure for this is to make the loaves thicker; this changes the ratio of crust to crumb, surface area to interior volume; it is the bread near the surface that goes stale first, and in doing so helps to preserve the interior. It follows that people who live a long way from a bakery buy, once a week, loaves up to a foot thick; while Parisians, for example, who are seldom more than 200 yards from a bakery, can buy fesh bread for each meal, and very thin, crispy loaves. The bread most favoured for breakfast is the BAGUETTE, a loaf about two feet long and two to three inches wide. For breakfast, this is cut into TARTINES. segments six inches long split through the middle, on which is spread butter (real butter) and a conserve, usually strawberry or apricot jam. The Tartine, be it noted, is an exception the the usual French rule that bread should be broken rather than bitten. As well as bread, the classic French breakfast includes croissants (or pain au chocolat or pain au raisin), again with jam. Croissants are not to be buttered, because they are already one-third butter and to add more would be absurd. To drink: tea is common, hot chocolate even more so, especially for childre; but the normal drink is coffee. french coffee during the rest of the day is inclined to be strong and small in quantity; breakfast coffee is brewed weaker (almost to American taste) and further diluted with hot milk. It is often drunk from a bowl rather than a cup. Mind you eat up all the bread and all the croissants; if they are the real thing and not cheap supermarket substitutes, you'll want to - and they'll be stale by lunchtime anyway. well if you are really posh you would eat: a croissant, a coffee and maybe some toast. but if you are normal you would eat a bowl of cereal
cheese, bread, croissants, fish To be honest, they eat the same as other people worldwide.
Some of the most famous meals in France are frogs legs, and snails these two meals are the most well known. There are numerous delicious French appetizers, for example, … 1. Croûte aux Morilles (my personal fav)2. Tarte au Fromage (Cheese Tart) 3. Truite au Vin Jaune (this one is VERY YUMMY) and the Fondue!!! Relatively few French eat frogs' legs and snails are an appetizer, not a meal. The French eat a wide range of things for dinner, but very standard fare would be steak or veal, or various sorts of fish, often with fries or a salad in a restaurant, typically with potatoes or a vegetable at home. A meal for guests will typically be multi-course, but if it's only the family it might be an appetizer, a main course and then a few pieces of fruit, with or without wine.

Yes, although it is a bit out of fashion. This is called 'pain perdu'.
Mangeons. et si on mangeait?
The French eat the same basic meals that we do in America. However, in their main meals, they have different courses. They have an appetizer, a fish, a meat, salad, cheese… and then dessert.
I am currently studying french and we are on unit 6 french food. the french don't have too many snacks but when they do they enjoy fresh fruit such as apples, bananas, o…ranges etc. or they eat pastries or they eat biscuitts. i hope this is a help.
It depends - for breakfast it could be just butter or butter and jam, if it's to accompany a meal at midday or in the evening, it's eaten just as it is, but if it's to be used… as a snack (une casse-croûte) then it could be eaten with all the usual ingredients of a sandwich - saucisson, jambon, fromage, thon, tomates, laitue, pâté..........
Qu'est-ce que nous mangeons?
We mostly eat pork, beef, veal, mutton, lamb, chicken, turkey, rabbit, sometimes game animals. Other poultry such as duck (confit, magret) and Guinea Fowl (France is the firs…t producer in the world), and also young turkey (dindonneau). More rarely quails. A lot of cured or processed meat such as saucisson, pâté, rillettes that are eaten as appetizer (entrée) during the first course of the meal.
The French typically eat crepes at breakfast. Depending on what is put in them, they could also be served as a desert. They are also sold by street venders. Most creperies are… open all day.
I am a french canadians and we eat poutine, REAL maple syrup, croissant and yellow rice:D
No, goldfish are not eaten in France; they are used for decoration only.
