    Itís Dinner Time on the Space Station. Lobster or Beef Bourguignon?

    A French astronaut who leaves Earth these days does not leave
    French food behind.

    Here are some of the foods that Thomas Pesquet, a French astronaut who launched on a SpaceX rocket to the International Space Station on Friday, will enjoy during his six-month stay in orbit: lobster, beef bourguignon, cod with black rice, potato cakes with wild mushrooms and almond tarts with caramelized pears.

    ďThereís a lot of expectations when you send a Frenchman into space,Ē Mr. Pesquet said during a European Space Agency news conference last month. ďIím a terrible cook myself, but itís OK if people are doing it for me.Ē

    Sounds like a lot of thought has been put into the cuisine for the astronauts!

    Still brilliant to think to bring a French Chef along.
