    Eating Ritual

    There are many new things that I am happy to find them here. One of them is  the eating ritual. I do not know how to start, so many new ones. However I will try to put down what that impressed me so much. 

    Boulangerie or bakery.

    In boulangerie, we can have not only many varieties of French breads with a variety of shapes and cover of their crust but also paradise for  any kind of pie and tart, some times we can find sandwich also here. 


    Pain is sort kind of the French bread which is brown in colour and crusty mostly. They can be in various shapes also some times has topping on the crust.


    Brioche – this is the sweet bread, some have filling and some just empty without any filling.


    The tart or tarlettes – this one is like pie with topping.

    They have really mouth watering shape, so cute and desirable. Once I tried the tarte au citron, which is tart with citron jam as topping… wuiihhh I would say, it’s so sweet and sour in the same time.


    So far I have not seen the tart or sweet bread  with cheese filling like cheese cake or cheese bread. Perhaps, cheese is best to be eaten alone.

    In Boulangerie  I do not often see the white bread like we have for breakfast. In fact we can have such kind of bread in supermarket. In my opinion French people prefer having bread with crust, probably because of the way they eat is different from the way we eat white bread and also the French bread is last longer than white bread. They do not only cut the bread by hand but also used the bread to clean up the plate from the remain soup or sauce and also clean up the knife while eating cheese - in Bandung – people do not used to with that style.

    When I had an opportunity to have a dine outthere is  someone who cleaned up her  plate from sauce with the bread so skilful and the most impressive thing is while eating French talking actively.

    So I threw the joke, that French people eat and talk in the same time as fast as their TGV-the France ‘s high speed train. And instead of getting mad, the guy replied that  they are like Hamsters, when we are talking, we keep aside the food - in the cheek.

    Boulangerie is all around at every corner, and always busy – a real good business indeed.  Once I passed the street and found people waiting in front of the boulangerie made a long queue untill reach the street to buy bread ... no idea what is the speciallity  of this bakery. I took the picture of that bakery, the  name Atelier Boulangerie - located in the Boulevard Croix  Rousse, Lyon.

    Well if we are in Indonesia, we often see people bring their lunch as nasi padang in brown package, here it is a common sight to see people have bread in their hand, often they seem not able to bear their hunger, they are eating their bread while walking… hungry, hungry…. Hungry, can’t wait for more ...

    Just for info, in the traditional market, we can have other kind of bread which common eaten by African people, as there are quite a lot Moroccans here, which is thin bread without yeast.
