Christophe Théo (35, commercial technician, Auvers-Sur-Oise):
"I prefer starting my meal with vegetables, carrots or tomatoes
for example. Next, I adore the stuffed tomatoes that my wife
cooks, with sausage meat and mozarella. And then I always eat
cheese. Every meal! Milk products are very important. To finish,
I like an exotic touch: a mango or some kiwi fruit."
Johanna Kergal (21, flight attendant, Paris): "I
always try to eat a balanced meal. To start there could be eggplant
with mozarella that I make with the help of an Italian friend.
And then, because I adore fish, a little sole au fenouil would
do the trick. Finally, for dessert I'm crazy about apple pie.
Since I was a kid, I've eaten it every weekend."
Jean-Paul Maury (50, unemployed, Montauban): "I
often eat at restaurants, but never fast food. My favorite meal,
I try to have about once a month. Every day would be too much.
I start with an egg with jelly. then a good steak with a red
wine sauce and sauteed apples. Next, cheese is obligatory! I
eat brie from Meaux every night. For dessert, I love the floating
islands!" (floating islands are whipped egg whites on a
bed of English cream)
Jean-Paul Brosseau (41, restaurant owner, Grau-du-Roi):
"I am from Nantes originally and I adore seafood, so to
start I would eat stuffed oysters with a glass of muscadet. For
the main course, fillet of duck with honey and little potatoes
and a little Burgundy wine is unbeatable! Then some cheese, St.
Nectaire or cantal, and a Tatin tart with whipped cream. There's
my favorite meal, and I'm never still hungry after that!"
Rosalie Baldo (28, merchant, Marseille): "Until
I was 25, I adored fast food. Now I find it sickening, and I
don't eat it any more. I have Italian origins and prefer my mother's
cooking. We start with a salad with sun-dried tomatoes. Then
Sicilian calamari (that is to say, with a spicy sauce) with parsley
and garlic. With a good tiramisu for dessert, I am well-fed.
I love every cuisine; I try them all!"
