The other well-known peculiarity of the French food culture is its passion for home baking, including croissants, truffles, crè me-Brulee, jellies, and so on. If we don’ t go to a restaurant or somewhere else, all products are taken to our place from the local market where it is possible to get fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, meat from the farm. Following the French, we don’ t buy products, which were processed and chemically altered and which are full of synthetic ingredients such as hydrogenated fats, food dyes, preserving agents and fillers. We just don't need to worry about what is written on food labels, because it is a really rare occasion when we buy foods with labels.

The reception at that place has superimposed me to the extent that I decided to taste more foods, surely, with their main components of rice and fish.

After returning home I shared my impressions with my family members. Knowing the character of their prurient curiosity in every new food culture, I started my engrossing narrative from the name of the Japanese food culture which is given to it by me, that is, ‘ temperance in eating, variety in health colors’ .
