Savoir Fare

July 5, 2012 by Blue Ridge Leader Dine With Us - Hunt Country Gourmet, Lifestyle 1 comment
header_restaurantNEW

By George E. Humphries

The name of the eatery reported on in this review is a bilingual pun. The French language “savoir faire” is idiomatic for a human attitude of justified social confidence – “a sureness in social behavior” as one of my dictionaries puts it. And in English, among the definitions of the word “fare” is “range of food” and “material provided for consumption or enjoyment.”

So the name Savoir Fare is a bilingual play on words – reflecting a sure and confident hand in the kitchen and a wide range of good food. How much more educated fun can you get? … Continue Reading
