French Recipe

Good food and France are synonymous. Evidence of this lies not just in the tradition of French haute cuisine, which is practiced and appreciated in almost every important hotel and restaurant the world over, but in the simple cooking of the small provincial restaurants and auberges found all over France, and in ordinary French homes.  The recipes are typical of the sort of cooking practiced by French housewives, most of who would have some acquaintance with all the dishes described.

In France, food is treated with respect, and at every level of French life there is an innate understanding and appreciation of food and its characteristics. This understanding is shown by the knowledge and skill that the French display in choosing and judging the wide variety of French cheeses that are on sale throughout the country.

The French talk without affectation about the foods they eat and the wines that go with them. In the evenings and at weekends the hypermarkets are crowded with couples choosing food together. The ability to cook is a skill and a craft which people - both men and women - are proud to possess. French housewives, even those with jobs outside the home, delight in the style of their meals. A tradition of care and skill in the preparation of food is handed down by example from mother to daughter. Moreover, Frenchwomen expect to know how to construct a meal, just as they know how to choose vegetables and meat.
