Frenchitude Lesson #36: Whenever The Spirit (or Wine) Moves You, Don’t Hesitate to Sing At The Table

I have been struggling for the last half hour to be able to post this video of Robert’s Ban Bourgignon directly on my blog, but it seems to get lost in cyberspace every time.

As you can see, Robert, the Godfather of Le Caveau du Relais du Vieux Beaune was in fine form and gave us all a rousing rendition of Burgundy’s favorite drinking & celebrating song – Le Ban Bourgignon.

I don’t know of many fellow Canucks (with the exception of a few Newfoundlanders) that start singing during meals, but in France this is a regular occurrence. It’s so much more fun (and so much more latin) to shelve one’s reticence and join in.
