France is heralded worldwide for the flavorful, intricate and often intense cuisine native to the country. From delicious, fresh seafood on all coasts, to the pungent olives and garlic of the south, to the “farmhouse” fare influenced by the rich, fertile terrain of the mountains, French food is diverse. Yet the underlying commonality is the tradition that is inherent in every dish.

Each region of France has specialties characteristic of the area. Many ingredients are similar from province to province, but the dishes vary depending on local resources, traditions and customs.
