Roundtable Discussion with French Women ... Do They or Don't They Get Fat?

An interesting roundtable discussion at The Morning News shows that these women all follow the precepts of bestseller "French Women Don't Get Fat" ... and also delves into how the French think about American food (which I found to be the most interesting part of the discussion). Via Chocolate & Zucchini.
As long as they’re a little open-minded, the French are definitely curious about American food. Brownies, muffins, and Oreo cookies have made their way to France, and people like it. What actually amazes me is that you can find Oreo cookies in a fancy department store in Paris (Galeries Lafayette) right next to the Mariages Freres tea corner (a 150-year-old French tea shop)!
