    After more than two years of lobbying by President Nicolas Sarkozy and a brigade of French chefs, academics and politicians, French cuisine in 2010 earned a spot on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The "gastronomic meal of the French" — defined as "a festive meal bringing people together for an occasion to enjoy the art of good eating and drinking" — took its place alongside other embodiments of cultural heritage on UNESCO's list celebrating world art forms and traditions.



    Question 10: A survey of over 500 people through rsvp.com.au considered French food to be…

    A – romantic

    B – a turn on

    C – better than Italian cuisine

    D – more expensive

    B
