Famous and typical French food

Hi Samantha, thank you for writing!

I have lived in Paris several times and spend part of each year there, and I have French friends and eat what I consider to be typical and famous French food.

I’ve created some sections on this website to show you different types of famous French food, and you might like to have a look – on the main page you will see some photos – simply click each photo to read more about that type of food.


Please let me know if you have any more questions, I’d love to hear back from you.
