Do some Paris bistros over salt their food? [moved from France board]

ccferg | Dec 6, 2009 02:20 PM

I hear this complaint often on this board and had I not experienced it myself at a respected bistro in Paris I would have dismissed this as the cranky concern of health-obsessed Americans. I use salt quite freely in my cooking, but I don't want my food to taste "salty." Is there a cultural difference here? Or is using a lot of salt a cheap trick of chefs who are covering up flaws in their cooking?
