Picture this:  a worn wooden cutting board, a well-patinaed Opinal knife, and a rustic French salami.  Perhaps another board with a cheese course featuring a French style home-made Boursin style cheese.  There is a simple joy to the custom of stirring the appetite by serving thinly (the thinner the better with salumi) sliced cuts of peat.  This little ritual could be repeated daily on the fly fishing streams of France.  And it followed by some serious cooking from French asado to pates, and more.
