COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES. Bill at Atlantic Blog discovers the logic of after-dinner drinks.
What do you when you have had a very sweet dessert and you to balance it? Coffee, right? Wrong. My wife teaches English to French and German businessmen. She had several French students out for dinner, and with a sweet dessert, she planned to have coffee. The Frenchmen corrected her, pointing out that with sweet desserts, dry red wine is best. She though they were nuts, but also knows one of life's important rules: never ignore food advice from a Frenchman. The results are to be commended.
Must. Consider. This.
