French cuisine

The French chefs and cuisines are brilliant, making innovations and breakthroughs in style and flavours almost everyday

Traditional French cuisine is a perfect blend of rich, natural flavours with basic ingredients, and it is known for its finesse and flavours. Experts say, there are three types of French cuisine:

  1. Classical French Cuisine
  2. Cuisine Nouvelle
  3. Cuisine du terroir

Slightly more expensive than other variants, Classical French Cuisine includes rich and filling regional dishes, usually made with cream-based sauces. The second type, i.e., Cuisine Nouvelle is lighter and simpler, with smaller portions; it has more local ingredients and usually avoids heavy cream sauces. The last type, Cuisine du terroir is famous for its regional specialties, and is known for strictly using only local ingredients. But all three French cuisines have their own aroma and flavours, which make them one of the most desired cuisines in the world.
