A controversial new law in France will require restaurants to state whether or not they make their food from scratch, a move that many feel will increase diners' awareness of when and where they can eat food made from fresh, seasonal ingredients.
The law, which takes effect at the beginning of next year, would give qualifying restaurants a logo to display, signifying that their food is "homemade." The beef, however, is what a restaurant must do to qualify. Frozen vegetables, for example, are permitted — except for potatoes, ruling out the possibility of eating previously frozen french fries at a restaurant bearing the logo.
