business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Christian Science monitor reports that a new study by a French organization suggests that the amount of time that French women spend in the kitchen cooking is dropping.

In 1988, the average French woman spent 42 minutes preparing a weekday dinner; the most recent figures showed women in France now spending about 36 minutes preparing the evening meal.

In part, this shift has occurred because more French women have jobs; in part, it is because there are more options available to time-stressed shoppers there.

We've always labored under the premise that French women are mysterious, gorgeous, fabulous cooks, utterly charming and completely unattainable.

Ah, well…four out of five ain't bad.
