Just wondering if anyone could share their experience on eating hospital food in France? I am halfway through my 4 week 'stage d'adaptation' to validate my foreign diploma to be a French dietitian. I have worked in several hospitals in the states and with the NHS for a few years. My feeling is that there is much more emphasis on the food served in French hospitals for taste and pleasing the patients. A significant part of the French dietitian's job is to be sure the patient is getting what they want on the menu and also that they are satisfied with the food.(In contrast with the UK and USA where there is more emphasis on the medical aspects of nutrition).
My question is to anyone who has been a patient in French hospitals, perhaps compared to other countries, have you found a difference in the taste, quality, presentation between the food in France and other countries?
Thanks for your response!
