Culture Lesson 8
Meals For the French, eating is a cultural experience. Meals are not just about food, but about relaxing, chatting, and spending leisure time together. According to a survey taken by the French Committee for Health Education (CFES), 75% if the French eat their meals at the table. 4.2
The favorite place to eat both lunch and dinner is at home. Although French meals usually consist of four courses, the survey finds that the French diet is naturally balanced. Unlike most Americans, the French hardly ever snack outside of meals. Compare French eating habits to yours. 4.2
Tips By law, in France, restaurants automatically include a 15% tip (le pourboire) in every check. The service charge included (service compris or prix nets) should be indicated on the check and on the menu, but even if it is not, the tip is still included. Sometimes, customers may leave an additional amount if they are very happy with the service, but isn’t required or expected. 4.2
What is the fair tipping amount here? Is it comparable to France? 4.2 What do you think? Write out your opinions and facts and continue using this same paper to complete the rest of the work in this power point.
