French cuisine is enormously diverse unlike other cuisines. An understanding of the culture of French food plus recipes is an understanding of France itself. You will get different kinds of dishes across the regions of France. Every locality of France has different methods to prepare food with different kinds of ingredients.

In the given editorial, I have described how I love making foods and eating the Food of France specially. Although the French dishes are believed to be simple but they are not bland in taste. French cuisine is the most elegant and refined cuisine. French wine and French cheeses are the integral part of French food.

Who says French cooking is a complicated cooking?… Most of the cooking is quite simple. There is no especial technique to master to produce delicious entrees, filling main courses and tempting desserts.

Take a look at our 5 most trouble-free French dishes.

French crepes: they are the ideal dishes for the breakfast as well as for the dessert. You can prepare it by pouring the thin liquid batter into a butter gresed pan.Crepes can be eaten with different kinds of fillings, from the simple with only sugar to flambeed crepes Suzette plus elegant savory fillings.

Basque chicken: the dish is the speciality of France’s southwestern Basque region which uses the smoked ham, red peppers, onions, paprika and tomatoes put together in a savory stew. The dish can become tastier if eaten with rice.

Quiche: it is the simplest dish for which you can expect good results. You can make variety of quiches such as spinach quiche, broccoli quiche or salmon quiche. Quiche is prepared with eggs along with milk in a pastry crust. The pastry shell has to be baked before you add other ingredients like cooked meat, vegetables or cheese.

Tapenade: it is one of the quickest appetizers. It consists of pureed olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. Being a popular food in the south of France, it has an amazing taste of Provence. While making the tapenade, the olives and capers are chopped and you need to add olive oil till you make a thick paste. For giving flavors, garlic, herbs, brandy and lemon juices are the perfect ingredients.

Chocolate truffle: during Christmas time, nearly all the shops in France dedicate at least a full aisle to French Christmas Treats. And it’s not unusual to discover plenty of brands of chocolate truffles. It’s a wonderful blown chocolate which I feel must be needed to close a meal. Chocolate truffle is made with a chocolate ganache that is most often coated in cocoa powder. You can also use cream, caramel, nuts and berries for fillings.
