Although the cuisines of France and Italy are the most well-known, serious eaters should venture off of Europe’s culinary beaten-path to experience more of the continent’s exceptionally varied fare. Shaped in part by climate and available natural resources, every European country enjoys its own distinctive cooking style and signature dishes. In the warm, temperate south, Mediterranean flavors prevail, with olive oil and a wide variety of seafood, vegetables, and legumes often featured in regional specialties. Moving north -- to areas with harsher winter climates -- hearty, comforting dishes, and preserved foods, like pickled vegetables and smoked fish, are commonly eaten.
