    MAURICE CHEVALIER: 'Place Pigalle' (1946).

    Jaunty, catchy little number in which Maurice sings the praises of one of the hotspots of Paris nightlife. Recorded in 1946, but at this stage French song had yet to leave the music-hall tradition behind, and so Jacques Helian's arrangement sounds older. It's none the worse for...

    Such As.....

    The food's amazing, the language is gorgeous. There are other thigns too. Such as the landscape. I don't know whether you've all been to France, but there's a lot of countryside. Very useful if you want to go on long walks. As there's quite a bit of it, you don't run out of it...

    SS FRANCE: The SS France first took fare

    paying passengers in 1962 and was one of the most glamorous ocean liners of her day, not to mention the biggest. She plied the North Atlantic route and alternately undertook cruises for twelve years before the rising cost of fuel - and a reluctant French government - led to her...

    French Cuisine

    I've always loved french food & I have always loved to cook.  I'm beginning to fuse the two together, and so far so good.  :)  I just bought Julia Child's book, Mastering The Art of French Cooking.  It's a hard one to navigate through but packed with great...
