What are the rules for visiting other's houses?

[quote=“Brian_House, post:20, topic:33319”] if
you don’t like coffee would your friends actually welcome you as a visitor?

Surely a gracious host would do her/his best to accommodate to the taste of the guest and the idea of the guest not being welcome because of her/his preferences would be anathema to any French person, or host of any race or tribe.

Only until they find out I don’t like wine either


Peter - perhaps you missed the wink and smile at the end of my post :slightly_smiling_face:

Zoë - I also have problems with expected norms of hospitality as I’m vegetarian and allergic to cheese :face_with_raised_eyebrow::blush:

You’ll be most welcome here for a cup of tea or a non wine-based cold drink…

Miserable old git that I am, I did… Sorry for that Brian. :thinking::worried:

Wine, beer, tea, coffee, elderflower cordial - all available chez moi and you would be most welcome Peter!

UK ramping up it’s rules and media messages on visiting friends for coffee…

Interesting, nothing at all like that in France.

At the current disgracefully vacination rate here you will be doing this into the autumn…no travel, and heavily restricted summer season.

would be so without the complications of Covid :wink:
