Re: Those damned "real" French and their superior culinary tastes.

From what I have seen most reviews are by English numbties who buy French food in order to impress their neighbours I guess

 

I didn't look at the site but the reviews Betty repeated led me to that conclusion.

 

In my poorest years every UK trip to buy materials I would take stuff from France to sell in the UK and bring back the 99p loft insulation and Makita battery drills etc to sell in France.

 

My best result was selling some genuine Chinese Laguiole cutlery sets on Ebayuk, they were tat from Amazon that wasn't good enough to use in the apartments, and believe me the bar is not set high Big Smile [:D] the listing said that they were bought from a Boutique in Paris which is what the Amazon seller called themselves and my reason for sale was that they were too desirable and being stolen from the apartments (teaspoons always walk!).

 

There was a frenzied bidding war and most went to trendy addresses in London, I got great feedback one woman saying how impressed her dinner party guests and neighbours were Big Smile [:D]Big Smile [:D]

Re: Those damned "real" French and their superior culinary tastes.

As I said above, there are an inordinate number of positive reviews on Facebook from French people. Unless, of course, they're British people who have changed their names to French ones by deed poll to impress their friends.....

The reviews I cited above were all from people with French names.

The minority of French there names are made up.

Penelope rose (ROFL) loves the service. She can have French dinner parties to impress her fake friends. She says the food is delicious.

Now why don't the Wayne and Waynetta's living in Eymet find French delicious ?

The thing about wine is that it is very heavy. A pallet of wine weighs 800 - 1000 kg so there is a limit how much you can carry on a van. Maybe two pallets ???

Now, when we doing the wine runs in France on an artic we were only getting 50-100 euros a pallet back to London. Which is great on an artic but rubbish in a van.

So how does he make money ?</td></tr></table></td></tr></table></BLOCKQUOTE>
It's not a van, it's a bloody big lorry. He brings all sorts of things down as well as Tesco deliveries. I guess he makes his money the same way any other lorry driver does.

Re: Those damned "real" French and their superior culinary tastes.

Well that makes sense then.

What is worrying though, what are the numbties in Eymet buying apart from food in the UK that requires an large lorry/artic. He can't be bring down an artics worth of food with him ??....can he ???

Chancer, you have been to Eymet. Are all the British down there half cooked or something ?
