As a nice Italian boy, as well as a former runner-up in the Newman's Own & Good Housekeeping Recipe Contest for a dish I called Zezima's Zesty Ziti Zinger, I have many remembrances of things pasta.

When I heard recently about the rescue of Timbuktu by the French from the Ansar Dine, it somehow made me think of the time when France conquered this city in 1893.

I could never see myself in a little French maid's outfit, except on weekends while doing my household chores, and I don't suppose I'll ever wear one because: (a) I probably couldn't find something like that in my size and (b) I don't speak French.

Subtle, muted cool tones, the charm of carved details, foreign language script on fabrics and the romance of a by-gone era -- all of these details express the charm of French-inspired decor.

Pardon My French, Quebec, But Your Language Laws Are Ridiculous

So nice of you to offer these suggestions, Quebec. But do you really think that Walmart is going to become Le Magasin Walmart just for your shoppers? Even the "real" French are less stringent about their language laws -- and that's saying a lot.

Where danger is no longer an option in the form of whale training, Stephanie is drawn, like a moth to the flame, to the volatile volcano that is Ali. He is a construct of unbridled testosterone and is completely temperamental. His temper trigger is slight and his fury explosive.

The Trouble With Learning French

Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough | Posted 12.26.2012 | Travel
Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough

The words that one learns passively in a given language (that is to say, out on the street or simply through repeated and unsought auditory repetition) are often reflective of deeper cultural values and attitudes. In France, more often than not, this attitude is pessimism. Allow me to explain.

Tomas Maier's experience at Bottega Veneta exemplifies the importance of quality and shared values in turning around an organization -- a focus that must come from the ground up, infusing it at every level.

A Uniquely French Small-Ship Experience

Dr. Irene S. Levine

We are among eight Americans aboard le Boreal as it sets sail on a 11-day, late summer cruise from Boston Harbor en route to Montreal. Of the 192 passengers on board, another handful or two are English-speaking, from the U.K., Australia and Canada. But the complexion of the ship is decidedly French -- not only because of the predominance of French-speaking passengers (from France, Switzerland and Belgium) but in terms of ambiance and style as well.

A couple of years ago I made a French batter pudding called Clafoutis using fresh cherries. Though cherries are traditionally used to make this pudding, I figured that these sweet delicious Damson plums would be perfect in this pudding.

The appeal for silent movies comes not from imagining how a moldy piece of nitrate might have entertained our great grandparents more than staring at a blank wall but in catching a unique type of storytelling that's just about impossible to pull off today.

Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough

If you had spent a lot of time playing with a Paris-themed Playmobile set growing up, you would not be disappointed when you arrived in real-Paris -- except that the people are less "joint-y" and their hair's not as perfectly shaped. Unfortunately being able to appreciate quality design and effective city-maintenance programs does nothing to improve your French.

I so often hear from friends at home in the U.S. that they feel the French are cold, arrogant and standoffish... So, being a travel journalist, I thought the subject warranted a video about this age-old, cultural misconception between Americans and the French: Do the French Dislike Americans?
