Chabrot is an old custom that hardly survived into the modern world. There are the olde folks in the south west of France who still practice it, but you'll be lucky to spot one in the wild.
Chabrot is the practice of pouring a 1/2 glass of (red) wine in the remains of your soup, then bring the plate to your lips and drink it from the plate.
Practicing it yourself, in a French restaurant, may not go down well with the staff and other customers, these days.

  1. A cultural awakening! I've never heard of this before but I really must try it the next time I have guests! I almost never drink alcohol but I'd make an exception to try to keep such a fascinating custom alive!
