French Cuisine Vs. Mc Donald’s In France

When you want something that is different from traditional Thai cuisine, an interesting option is best French restaurant in Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Thailand. Aside from French food that has been prepared from the freshest ingredients, there are also creative cocktails that can cap off the meal. The stunning scenery around the restaurant will allow you to relax in style.

It goes without saying that the home of French cuisine is France; however, the country is also literally crowded with fast food centres like Mc Donald’s. Aside from the United States, no other country is home to so many Mc Donald’s as France even if a good number of the population still prefers traditional French cuisine.

In the Oleron Island, off Western France, the mayor refused to permit the building of a Mc Donald’s restaurant in the municipality of Dolus-d’Oleron. His argument was the building of Mc Donald’s was out of step with his ecological transition program that helped in his election four years ago.

Mayor Gregory Gendre prefers to create a sustainable food zone for the locals. In a 4-hectare area, the most advanced healthy food ideas will be implemented to defend local produce against the American fast food giant. As an alternative to Mc Donald’s, French media called the food zone “McDolus” after the town’s name.

However, even if the name resembles Mc Donald’s, Mc Dolus will be an open-air laboratory with food workshops and tasting. The main idea behind Mc Dolus is to show that food-related projects with the support of industry leaders can create sustainable economic models.

However, Mc Donald’s supporters that number more than 2,000 argue that the mayor is wrong in refusing permit to the giant fast food chain. At least 40 staff jobs and 30 temporary jobs will be lost. No ecological analysis has been made to determine whether local restaurants will lose if a Mc Donald’s store is opened in the municipality.

Compared to other cuisines all over the world, French cuisine has gained a global following. The influence of French cuisine is very apparent in Thailand with the best French restaurant in Chiang Mai that offers a diverse range of sophisticatedly cooked French dishes.
