With the recipes for its exquisite range of dishes dating back to the 17th century, the French cuisine has evolved into one of the most diverse and extensive spreads of dishes and recipes, with few others being able to match the variety that the French cuisine can flaunt. The French cuisine has evolved over the ages and has been shaped under the influences of many a skilled chefs, and many social movements.One of the major reasons for the breathtakingly wide range of choices that one can afford when opting for the French from amongst the cuisines, is the geographic setting of France. France’‘s exquisite spattering of dishes is a reflection of the country’‘s equally exquisite spattering of geographies that includes a combination of a variety of climates other varying growing conditions, which enables the production of a large number of ingredients that are used in the dishes. | The most dominant ingredients of the French cuisine are in most cases those that grow in the very country. The list includes the potatoes, the zucchinis, French green beans, mushrooms, truffles, shallots, leeks, turnips, eggplants, tubers, shallots and of the carrots.When it comes to fruits, the list runs a little longer ensuring a good selection of French desserts and dishes that leaves our taste buds longing for more. The usual suspects in the French fruit basket includes grapes, plums, peaches, apples, pears, strawberries, tomatoes, oranges, blackcurrants, cherries, tangerines, apples and apricots. Equally diverse is the selection of meat that is used in most French recipes which includes the squabs, geese, turkey, ducks, chicken, beef, veal, mutton, quail, horse, rabbit, and pork. The eggs are usually either made into omelets, are hard-boiled with some mayonnaise or are scrambled plain. In the seafood section the French catch is usually the cod, the herrings, the mussels, the sardines, the tuna, salmon, trout, snails, oysters, shrimps, calamari and frog’‘s legs. To honor of adding the final touch is bestowed to thyme, fluer de sel, tarragon, herbes de provence, rosemary, sage, marjoram, lavender, and fennel. | When one thinks of French food the first thing that pops up is their wine and of course their cheese. The selection of wine that the French cuisine boasts is unmatched by any other and consists of the likes of Merlot, Grenache, Ugni Blanc, Syrah, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Pinot noir and Chardonnay.The wine and the bread are considered to be the basic French meal, and is usually the traditional baguette and cheese with some delicious wine to wash it down. Bread is one of the most famous ingredients of a perfect French meal and some of the most common breads that one will find in their cuisine is the baguettes, the ficelles, the Flûte, the miche, pain de champagne, and fougasse. The savory dishes in the French cuisine is usually the steak au poivre, the pommes duchesse, blanquette of veal, rooster in red wine, beef stew with mixed vegetables, duck with sausages and white beans, chitterling sausage, lighter flavored bratwurst, fatty duck liver, chicken and fries, steak and fries and the duchess potatoes. The signature French desserts include the likes of cream puffs, brunt creams, éclair, madeleine, mille-feuilles, mousse au chocolat, tartes aux fruits, tartetatin, religieuse and baked puff pastries filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with melted chocolate that is the profiteroles.|The traditional French meal consists of three courses of food: An introductory course known as the entrée which usually consists of soup, the main course which is termed the plat principal, and the choice of either a cheese course or dessert which is in most cases preceded by a salad. When it comes to proper traditional settings and an elaborate lay of the table the meal is generally split into six courses. The first course of the meal is always the Hors D’‘ Oeuvres which is the first course that is the appetizers which are usually served with a cocktail like aperitif.As is the general case, even the appetizers are quite diverse in type and selection when it comes to the French. Some of the most common ones include nachos, dumplings, bruschetta, tongue toasts, spanakopita, cocktail wieners, crudités, cheeses, cold cuts, caviar, canapés, Buffalo wings and deviled eggs. In some meals, the Hors D’‘ oeuvres is followed by a fish course. The fish course is always garnished with vegetables and comes before the meat course, which is the main course in a French meal. The main course is usually an elaborate meat dish like the pot-au-feu which is a beef stew. The pot-au-feu is considered one of the most delicate and exquisite dishes and is one of the most celebrated dishes in the entire of France. Most traditional pot-au-feu consists of cuts of beefs, some cartilaginous meat like the tail, and some kind of sausage, like the Morteau sausage. The vegetables used are usually carrots, turnips, leeks, celery and onions and to spice things up there is the salt, black pepper, cloves and bouquet gami. The dish is served with coarse salt and Dijon mustard. Some of the other main dishes, the plat principal, includes the Pommes Frites better known as the French fries, the baguette which of course is accompanied by some meat and of course the French cheeses. The French consume and produce the largest amounts of cheese in the world, and the finest at the latter. Some of the most popular French cheese used in cooking includes the Camembert, Brie de Meaux, Roquefort, Reblochon, Boursin, Munster, Epoisses, Pont L’‘Eveque, Tomme de Savoie, Chevre, and the Epoisses. After a sumptuous main course of the many varieties of the Plat Principals available, comes the Salad course which is simple green tossed with vinaigrette. The salads are meant to help with the digestion and are quite tasty too. Some famous French salads includes the Perigord Salad, a traditional French recipe from the region of Perigord whose special ingredient is the gesier de canard, the reason for its other name of “Salad de Gesier.” A typical Perigord salad consists of lettuce, walnut oil, duck giblets, bread, vinegar and walnuts. Other equally popular salads include the Cheese and tomatoes salad, the walnut oil salad, the truffle salad, the Roquefort salad and the Foie Gras salad. After the salad comes the cheese plate which is one of the many things that makes the French cuisine unique and delicious at that. The cheese place is kind of a pre-dessert in a French meal and consists of assorted cut fruits with cheese of one’‘s choice. To the end of the meal and the varieties of dishes is the sweet dessert. The traditional French meal is not complete without the dessert and the French are known for their richness, the thick indulgent, extravagantly decorated and garnished desserts. Some of the signature French desserts includes the nut tarts, the apples and almonds in flaky pastry, the lost bread, the French pancakes, French yogurt cakes, the king cakes, crème caramel, a rich custard dessert with a soft layer of caramel on top otherwise known as flan, walnut cakes, fruit tarts and rhubarb tarts. The desserts are usually served with a demitasse of freshly brewed café which offers a perfect and delicate combination of tastes that will linger in your mouth long after you’‘re done with the perfect French meal.
