France: Consuming culture(s)... The dairy kind

Despite the global recession, French cheese consumption grew.

....or maybe my last trip to Paris put a serious dent in the tomme de
Savoie and crottin de chavignol inventories.

I'm all seriousness, I suspect consumers are simply spending less on
luxury goods... Shifting a percentages to luxury foods. It's easier to
justify to ourselves right? I mean come on... You have to eat.
