France

Developed, defined and refined in France, haute cuisine marks the pinnacle of fine dining. Yet the French, thrilling to the familiar as well as the fancy, also love their casual bistros, where classic dishes (like coq au vin, beef burgundy, and moules or steak frites) are offered at reasonable prices. Indeed, the French possess a high food IQ. Not content to just “shovel it in,” the French take personal and national pride in being well informed about what they eat and drink, where the ingredients come from and how they are produced. Food in France is a complete cultural phenomenon. The French not only invented the restaurant and haute cuisine but also the literary tradition that champions them. The roots of today’s food magazines and celebrity chefs go back to France. Indeed, from hors d’oeuvres to entrees, we all speak the language of French cuisine.
