So I went to visit a friend…an older and particularly “proper” French lady who gave it to me straight: You ARE allowed to dunk bread into coffee. You can also dunk croissants. You are allowed to mop up sauce with bread BUT the piece of bread must be attached to the end of a fork and you may do this exactly…one time. (You can’t spend 10 minutes wiping your plate clean with the equivalent of 17 baguettes.) And no moping, or dunking at a business lunch. (Now you tell me!)
