Jacques Chirac's Food Review

While France and Great Britain awaited the decision on which country would host the 2012 Olympics, France's President Jacques Chirac blasted the rival nation during a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder in 2005 during what he thought was a private chat (it wasn't). "The only thing that they have ever done for European agriculture is mad cow disease," Chirac said. "You cannot trust people who have such bad cuisine." In the end, London had the last laugh.
