The French have a festive and convivial tradition of gathering before a meal to share a glass of wine, cocktails and savory small dishes. It is the Apéritif. Originally conceived to “whet the appetite” before dinner or lunch, the Apéritif is part of the famous French gourmet meal which was added in 2010 to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.
