It’s time to move away from comfort food! Here are five suggestions for introducing seasonal spring goodness into your diet.
About · France
France: where gastronomy is king
France really does have it all: the sea, the mountains, the countryside, and towns with infinitely rich historical and cultural centres. And we haven’t even mentioned the food yet! The country has 375 controlled designations of origins (AOCs), 1,200 varieties of cheese and just as many regional specialities. North, south, east or west: wherever you go in France, the love of good food never wavers. Ranging from Michelin-starred restaurants to bistros, the best French restaurants often offer traditional dishes demonstrating the full variety of French cuisine.
Varied culinary fare
In France, anything is possible, whether you’re looking for lunch in a secret garden in the heart of Paris or surrounded by nature in Aix-en-Provence, dinner in a Michelin-starred restaurant with views of the sea in Trouville, Italian food in Amiens, or Mediterranean cuisine in Cannes. You can share traditional French cuisine with family or friends at a bistro, bar, or on the terrace of a restaurant. Whatever the season, the nation that gave us Voltaire always has something to offer in the way of French cuisine. In France, we cook with ingredients sourced from local producers who use integrated and often organic farming methods. Although we’re attached to our traditions, we’re also open to blending our typical cuisine with flavours from around the world.
Brunch: a new French tradition
There’s nothing quite like treating yourself to brunch in an idyllic setting at the weekend. And France has plenty of idyllic settings to choose from! Enjoy brunch surrounded by the wild nature of the Quiberon peninsula, between two Loire châteaux in Ardon, behind the fortifications in Carcassonne, on the old port in Marseille or a stone’s throw from the Strasbourg canals. Such brunches offer you the chance to experience French cuisine differently in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. In short, you can experience everything that makes food enjoyable: getting together for an exceptional meal, before heading off to discover the treasures France has to offer.
