About French Cooking

French cuisine can rightly be considered one of the most sophisticated and original culinary traditions in the world. It is very highly appreciated by professional cooks and in 2010 UNESCO even included French gastronomy in the list of “intangible cultural heritage”. This style of cooking has been taking shape on the territory of modern France for many centuries. If initially in France there were actually two culinary traditions – simple (peasant) and bourgeois, today these traditions have intertwined and formed the main principles of modern French cuisine.

The main peculiarity of the French traditional cuisine is the use of only the freshest products. The French pay great attention to the quality and freshness of each individual ingredient. Despite the peculiarities of regional cuisines, vegetables and root vegetables – eggplant, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cabbage, greens and salads are very popular throughout the country.

French cuisine and culinary tradition, like any rich tradition, consists of many regional ones. The western provinces of France like spicier and spicy food, Alsatian cuisine takes its cue from German, the seaside inhabitants eat fish and seafood. However there are also the national French cuisine, which is loved and cooked all over the country – these are the world famous baguettes, foie gras (pâté of goose liver), thin crêpes, béchamel sauce and crème brûlée. A traditional meal in France consists of three courses: an appetizer (an introductory course, sometimes a soup), a main course and dessert. Cheese or salad may be served as an additional course.

For the first course, the French prefer soup puree. A traditional holiday dish is a very thick fish soup bouillabaisse, popular in the Provence area. However, French cuisine does not insist on compulsory consumption of soups – people there often make do with light snacks.

For the main and second course French cuisine offers dishes with meat or fish. Almost all types of meat, sea and freshwater fish, and seafood are used. The French prefer to cook meat and fish in few proven ways, but they do not get tired of the same dishes because they love experimenting with sauces. Sauces are perhaps the main specialty of French cuisine, since it is in this country that they were invented.

When the main dish has been eaten the dessert is usually served. The dessert may be just a cup of coffee, which the French simply adore, and croissant, and various pastries and crème brûlée.

However, it is not so much the recipes of French cuisine that are noteworthy as the French’ approach to food intake in general. Here it is not customary to eat in a hurry, in a hurry – the French like to eat slowly, enjoying every dish and drinking it all with excellent local wine, which the French know a lot about. Just kidding – a meal (not a feast, namely eating) in France can last two or three hours. This is another reason why French cuisine is so highly regarded by experts around the world.
