Etiquette for Formageries and Charcuteries in Paris...

jj | May 19, 2005 10:32 AM

Hi there,

We are leaving for Paris next Wednesday and cannot wait! I just had a quick question on etiquette for purchasing cheeses and meats in Paris… is it acceptable and common to ask for samples at these types of shops (as you would in the US)? If so, what should we say? Neither of us speaks French so any guidance would be helpful!
