About

French cuisine:  includes cooking traditions and practices from France; practices that  are famous for the rich tastes and subtle nuances that can be found in all its preparations and rich history. France, a country famous for its agriculture and independently minded peasants, has always been a creative powerbase for delicious recipes, which are both healthy and refined.

Guillaume Tirel (Pont-Audemer 1310 – 1395),alias Taillevent, was a court chef who wrote Le Viandier, which became one of the earliest recipe collections of medieval France. During that time, French cuisine was very influenced by Italian cuisine. In the 17th century, chefs François Pierre La Varenne and Marie-Antoine Carême spearheaded movements that shifted French cooking away from its foreign influences and developed France’s own indigenous style. Cheese and wine are a major part of the cuisine, and they play different roles regionally and nationally, with many variations and appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) (regulated appellation) laws.

French cuisine was codified in the 20th century by Auguste Escoffier, who succeeded in turning it into the modern haute cuisine that we know today; Escoffier, however, left out much of the regional culinary character to be found in the regions of France. Gastro-tourism and the Guide Michelin helped to acquaint people with the rich bourgeois and peasant cuisine of the French countryside. Gascon’s cuisine has also had great influence over the cuisine in the southwest of France. Many of those dishes that once were regional have proliferated in new variations across the country.

The French cooking has indeed contributed, in a very significant way, to improve Western cuisines; also its criteria are widely used in Western cookery school boards and in the culinary formation. In November 2010, French gastronomy was added by the UNESCO to its lists of the world’s “intangible cultural heritage”. The French can indeed be very proud of their excellent gastronomy.
