All points delicious in France

By Ann | September 22, 2009

I’m so tickled by this postcard, which I found while browsing at Cartes d’Art (9 rue du Dragon, Paris, 6ème) this weekend! As you can see, there’s certainly no shortage of delicious food in France — the whole country is stuffed (quite literally) with regional specialties!

Click here for a closer look. I especially like the nougat that looks like bleu d’Auvergne that looks like roquefort. Oh, and apparently foxes eat ice cream cones.

    This is the best postcard in history. I love it. It’s also educational: I didn’t know about the pretzels of eastern France.

    I agree with CK. And in the spirit of full disclosure, I dragged it to my desktop and immediately uploaded it into our digital teaching archives (for UM TAs). Just think, dozens of dazed and confused UM undergrads will have a bad photocopy of this in their French 102 notebook soon … I love this postcard!

    Alison — You’re so right! It IS Richard Scarry! All we need is the lowly worm in his little apple-mobile. Love him.

    CK — I know! So many things to taste! Like kouglaf (a cake?) also from Alsace region. Or maroilles cheese from near Lille.

    Heather — Wow, lucky UM French students! I like knowing I’m contributing to their Francophone experience in some small way.

    Camille — I love the expression on the lion’s face. His eyes are closed like he’s overwhelmed by the pretzel’s deliciousness.
