Bienvenue and welcome to
Traditional French Food

Traditional French food is very simple, yet full of flavour. If you have ever been to France, and sampled any traditional French recipe you will agree.

The knowledge and experiences I have gained from living and cooking and eating in France have re-educated my taste buds and I hope I can pass on my enthusiasm.

My family and I relocated to france nearly 14 years ago, we have eaten at restaurants, like the traditional farm restaurants called Ferme Auberge to the prestigious Le Vieux Logis and at the homes of many french friends. The french are very social people, eating together is truly the 'norm' to them. Learning the tips and techniques from the locals has made me realise how cooking simple french dishes is easy and rewarding.

You can use the interactive map of France below to browse through our recipesrestaurants and information from the different regions or France, or follow the links further down the page to find specific information about famous French food and recipes.

Traditional French Food can change dramatically as you travel in France as there are many regions with their own very distinct flavours. From Confit de Canard a beautifully preserved duck from Perigord to Cotriade a delicious fish stew from Brittany. Most of the recipes I'm giving you are traditional and regional favourites.

There are also Famous French Foods that are known throughout the gastronomic world. Here I try and explain methods and techniques used throughout their history. I have acquired many recipes from friends and families of friends, some research has been done using established French cookbooks.
