Planning a meal

When planning a meal there are many things to consider. Est-ce que vous mangez juste pour répondre aux nécessités vitales? ou Est-ce que manger pour vous c'est sacré, un art?

Mettre la table et le couvert - Clquez ici pour lire plus sur l'expression "mettre le couvert".

Mettre le couvert: language note: Autrefois, tous les convives d'une même tablée mangeaient dans un plat unique. Les rois et les seigneurs furent les premiers à être servis individuellement. Cependant, craignant qu'une personne malveillante ne cherche à les empoisonner, l'ordre était donné de couvrir tous les plats et boissons avant de les servir. On disait alors qu'il fallait les présenter "à couvert". De ces "couvercles", le sens s'est étendu à tous les ustensiles qui furent utilisés par la suite.

la pyramide alimentaire

Aujourd'hui, "mettre le couvert" signifie que l'on prépare la table avec des assiettes, des verres, des couteaux et des fourchettes.

--Avec ou sans moutarde?
--Avec de la moutarde?

--De l'eau minérale?

--Je vous apporte ça tout de suite.

Les serveursUn client a vu la scène. Très étonné, il dit au garçon:
--Ça, vraiment, c'est extraordinaire!
Le garçon répond:
--Oui, c'est extraordinaire. Ce chien vient ici depuis dix ans, et c'est la première fois qu'il commande de l'eau avec son repas. D'habitude il prend toujours du jus de tomate.

  2. Le chien veut de la moutarde.

  5. Le chien prend de l'eau minérale.

Asking about "les préférances"Les Préférances

PRACTICE 5: To ask about les préférances you will be using the verbs aimer (to like), préférer (to prefer), détester (to dislike), and vouloir (to want).

First, to ask the question: Est-ce que tu aimes...?

And your answer: J'aime... or Non, je n'aime pas

Now let's try another verb, le verbe préférer (to prefer), to see which activities you prefer. There are two ways you can do this. The first way is in responding to the question from above. Look at how this is done:

  • Est-ce que tu aimes parler espagnol ?
  • Oui, j'aime parler espagnol, mais je préfère parler français.

Here you are saying you like to do the thing asked, but that you would prefer doing something else. The second way involves a new question, with a different answer:

  • Qu'est-ce que tu préfères, jouer au tennis ou jouer au ping-pong?
  • Moi, je préfère jouer au tennis.

You can now try the conversation with the verb détester.

  • Est-ce que tu détestes travailler?
  • Oui, je déteste travailler.

Les Souhaits (Wishes)

We all have wishes and dreams (les rêves). Maybe, even during un cours (class) à l'école tu es à la lune (daydreaming). There is a simple way to talk about this, you just begin your conversations with yet another verb, this time the verb is vouloir (to want).

Je veux jouer au tennis.

Je *voudrais voyager en France.

Je ne veux pas étudier maintenant.

*The difference between "je veux" and "je voudrais" in French is that "je voudrais" is more polite. It means I would like instead of I want.


In French, you can easily add richness to your sentences by adding some key conneting words such as parce que (because), mais (but), ou (or), and et (and). As you learn, push yourself to always include more content.

j'adore l'anglais parce que c'est intérressant
j'aime les maths parce que le prof est formidable
j'aime l'anglais, mais je préfère la biologie
je n'aime pas la technologie parce que c'est ennuyeux
je déteste le dessin parce que c'est nul


When given an option, the question changes slightly:

Est-ce que tu préfères les maths ou l'anglais?

Notice the use of the word "ou" which means "or". To answer, use the same format as above. Feel free to expand or just keep it simple.

Moi, je préfère l'anglais.


Here are some questions to ask about preferences regarding food and meals. Remember the structure (Question Word [optional] + Est-ce que + Subject + Verb).

  • Qu'est-ce que tu aimes manger?
  • Où est-ce que tu dînes normalement, au restaurant, au café ou à la maison?
  • Qui prépare la nourriture chez toi?
  • Qu'est-ce que tu manges pour le petit déjeuner, le déjeuner, le dîner?
  • Quel est ton plat (dish) préféré? [ton dessert, ton repas, etc.]

Assignment 1: Describe your food preferences to pratice the vocabulary. Say whether or not you like certain things. Share this in French.

Assignment 2: First do the reading, then do the assignment that follows:

Reading about food.


La cuisine française est super!

Il y a 3 repas principaux en France :

-         Le petit-déjeuner

-         Le déjeuner

-         Le dîner

Les Français consacrent en moyenne dix-sept minutes au petit-déjeuner, trente-trois minutes au déjeuner et trente-huit minutes au dîner.

Les Français mangent vingt-deux kilos de fromage par an par personne, neuf kilos de beurre, soixante-cinq kilos de pain et boivent treize litres d’alcool.

Les Français aiment beaucoup le fromage. Il y a quatre cent différents fromages en France ! Par exemple le camembert, le brie, la tomme, le bleu, le fromage de chèvre…

Les Français mangent aussi des cuisses de grenouille, des huîtres, du cheval, des escargots ! Quelle horreur !!

  1. What is not one of the meals in France?
  2. Which meal takes the longest to eat?
  3. How much bread do the French eat?
  4. How many types of cheese are there?
  5. What type of meat is "cheval"?

What time to do you eat? Describe in French at what time you eat the meals of the day (in general). For instance, you might say: I eat breakfast at 7:00, lunch at 11:30, and dinner at 7:00. For an extra challenge, name one thing you eat for every meal.

Le menuAssignment 3: Create a Menu - click on the menu to the left to see a large example.

For this project you will take all of the knowledge you have learned about the culture and etiquette surrounding French food to create an imaginative menu. This menu should be similar to the menus found outside of every French café with the chef's specials, the options for each course, as well as a drink menu, and all the prices in Euros. Remember that cafés typically offer what is referred to as "Le Menu" which is a two or three course meal for a good price.

This project will be used to prepare for your café day experience. So try and include items that you are willing to make and bring to class. Of course, be creative and fun too with your naming. Each group will select a menu, so use this as a preparation for that activity.

PerrierAssignment 4: Every store in America carries imported food from France, everything from bottled water, to cheese, to candy and chocolate. Go to the store or look up online to find a product from France that you have seen sold here in America.

Assignment 5: Desserts are the best part of the holiday season. France loves desserts. Watch this video to learn about how desserts play a role. This was a student doing this project. Do you recognize any desserts? There is much to be learning by studying desserts, but beware, you will want to go eat one if you watch this.


Assignment 6: Le Réveillon et la Messe de Minuit:

Although fewer and fewer French attend la Messe de Minuitor Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, it is still an important part of Christmas for many families. It is followed by a huge feast, called le Réveillon (from the verb réveiller, to wake up or revive). Le Réveillon is a symbolic awakening to the meaning of Christ's birth and is the culinary high point of the season, which may be enjoyed at home or in a restaurant or café that is open all night. Each region in France has its own traditional Christmas menu, with dishes like turkey, capon, goose, chicken, and boudin blanc (similar to white pudding). Families set out 13 desserts, which also change from region to region. For this assignment, find something from the list below to use as a base for a treat that you'll bring to class (optional) or just share something you made or like.

Dried fruit and nuts

"The first four of these are known as the "four beggars" (les quatre mediants), representing the four mendicant monastic orders: Dominicans, Franciscans, Augustinian and Carmelites."

• Raisins (Dominicans)

• Walnuts or hazelnuts (Augustines)

• Dried figs (Franciscans)

• Almonds (Carmelites)

• Dates, representing the foods of the region where Christ lived and died

• Dried plums from Brignoles

Fresh fruit

Assignment 7: Café day is a great tradition that we have in class. It is a real-life experience, or at least as close to one as we can get. Each group will prepare a set of dishes, plan and prepare a menu, and decorations to represent their café. Then we eat. For this experience, prepare and complete your required assignment. There is no "I" in team. The best cafés will receive extra credit and awards.

Assignment 8: During the long break, complete 60 minutes of reading in French. It is best to do a few minutes a day, then the entire hour in one shot. You can read a book you have, or one here online:
