Hi, just want to defend myself here, Chowhound editors; YOU COMPLETELY MISSQUOTED ME HERE in your 'condensation' of my quote in my post regarding shared dishes in French Resto's. I am shocked you said I was shocked at the practice - since I said NO SUCH THING AT ALL! In fact, I said it was a shame we didn't see this more in the US, and was trying to explore if others felt the same.
If you look through my many posts, you would realize that I have been to France several times, have a French BF, and was actually trying to engender a conversation about how I LOVE this convivial style of serving - very welcoming and homey, as well as makes me feel 'hosted' as it is often an Amuse Buche that comes this way.
I wanted to hear other Chowhounds from around the country - if they see this style of service in their cities and towns, as I don't much in Seattle, where I live.
Please be careful about misrepresenting a faithful Chowhounder like that - I feel abused by the editors, and embarrassed about how you made me sound as if I was a shocked neophite traveler!
Please retract and rewrite this, or take it down, for the sake of my reputation here.-
