3 Hour Dinners

September 26, 2018

Dinner at my house may be 20 minutes. Here, they can take 3 hours.

The owner met us at the church in Saint Felix and guided us up to the house.

I’m staying in a house with three other guests and the host. We were called to dinner at 6:30 and are just now finishing

The owner has guests because it is fun. He doesn’t want people every night.

The conversation is all in French.

The cheese plate is second to last, but the discussion of the various cheeses on it, where they came from, takes a full half hour.

Appetizers of cheese wrapped in ham, wine, and tomatoes is followed by a cold sliced meat plate and sliced tomatoes, by mashed potatoes with codfish, by more wine, and finally fruit cocktail. I should have taken more pictures in 3 hours.

  1. Why is it that Americans always prefer a rush job with eating? Even at upsale restaurants I usually feel rushed.

    • Agreed. Iā€™m changing my dinner plan.

      • šŸ˜‰ It doesn’t exactly have to be 3 hours, of course. But I like to be sitting and sipping a brandy and/or a coffee after a good meal at a restaurant. Different at home, though, with the usual weekday dinners.
