France is known all over the world for its food, both savoury dishes or sweet. There are a number of traditional foods that are well known, such as cheese and pastries, depending on which part of the country you are in. Don’t worry … even if you have heard that they eat snails, frogs’ legs and rabbit in France, it is not really very common. However, if you are a little bit adventurous it is a very good experience to try. French cuisine is very good. The French love to eat and mealtimes are very important. Dinner is the most important meal during the week because everyone can be together after work, but during the weekend, lunch may be the main meal of the day. Extended family meals for a special event may start at 12pm and not finish till 5pm, with multiple courses served, eg, an appetizer, entrée, main, salad, cheese, dessert. It is rare to find a vegetarian family in France, even more so for a vegan, and gluten is common in most households as French bread is much-loved!
