The race is not to the swift...

...neither bread to the wise...but time and chance and $600 lunches can make even French chefs appreciate fast food:
Upmarket French chefs used to serving meals costing as much as £300-a-head are having to open fast-food extensions because of the worsening economic situation.

....As the credit crunch bites, some of the biggest names are even offering sandwiches to previous big spenders.

....Paul Bocuse, the celebrity chef known as the "pope" of French cuisine, is among those who have introduced a fast food joint to his chain of restaurants which include the world famous l'Auberge du Pont de Collonges, near Lyon.

Ouest Express offers entire express meals from £10, and ham sandwiches and hamburgers at just over £4 and £5 respectfully.
