Picard, the frozen food store, was the subject of one of my first blog posts and I'm still a die hard fan. I don't have a huge freezer but what space there is, is stuffed with chopped onions, salmon steaks, oven fries, pizza, green beans, spinach, and ice cream -- all from Picard. There are a few sour notes in their inventory (for example, stay away from the pretty but soggy hors d'oeuvres) but all in all, it's a winner in my book.
Americans in Paris tend to wonder why there's no Picard in the U.S. I heard one rumor that they took the concept to New York but no one got the idea of going anyplace but the supermarket for frozen foods. I've also heard the story, more than once, about French women married to men who say they hate Picard products. Little do they know that they've been eating them all along and their wives are smart enough to ditch the cartons before their husbands come home for dinner.
