Carousel and Contemporary French Cuisine and Food Culture

French Cuisine and Food Culture


The most important part of the French Meal is the baguette, a long thin loaf of crusty bread. The French Cuisine is extremely diverse, which offers some of the world’s most extraordinary good foods ion all its forms. The rich cooking of Classic French Cuisine and French Food Culture have changed drastically from the 1970s. The New French Cuisine has a healthful cooking philosophy with all crisply cooked vegetables; fruit based sauces to flour and cream sauces. From classic French cooking to Nouvelle Cuisine, and the many French Regional Cooking Styles, there is something to satisfy just about every palate.

The French Meals are very basic, such as the traditional baguette plus cheese plus inexpensive wine, to very detailed affairs than can involve a dozen courses and different wines consumed over several hours. The more Sophisticated French Dining is typically found in "French restaurants" outside France, which gives many foreigners the mistaken impression that French Food is heavy and complicated. In fact, much of the French cuisine is fairly simple, relying on high quality fresh ingredients and loving preparation rather than complex recipes.
