Feast Your Eyes: What Are French Schoolkids Having for Lunch?

by Nicola Twilley

March 12, 2011

Chef and food blogger extraordinaire David Lebovitz tweeted this photo of a weekly lunch menu in a Paris public elementary school. While pizza and chocolate milk are on offer (but only on Wednesday), catering company Sogeres (France's equivalent of Sodexho or Aramark) has laid on such delights as fillet of salmon with a lemon sauce, thinly sliced organic endives, and lentil salad with hard-boiled egg. The four-course meals begin with salad or soup, include a cheese course, and end with a fruit selection on most days, although Thursday's dessert is a delicious-sounding dark chocolate mousse.
