Ah, the French, and the amazing culinary delights the people of France have conjured up over the long life of this small, but wonderful country. French cuisine is often considered to be the most complex and difficult to make worldwide.

But, surprisingly, there are plenty of easy French food recipes, and you will find some here, as well as traditional and classic French food recipes.

Much like in Italy, to the French, mealtime is not just for eating, it is a social event, a time for friends and family to gather, have some good food (and drink! There is always good wine at the table!), and share with each other about what’s happening in their day and lives.

Much like North Americans, the French typically have three meals a day: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Breakfast will usually be light, taken with black coffee, or café au lait (coffee with hot milk), or hot chocolate or tea. Fruit juice – apple or orange, most likely – might also be served. The food traditionally would be bread – a baguette, which is a long, crusty loaf available fresh, and must be eaten fresh – or croissants.

The bread and/or croissants are served with condiments, like jam, preserves, butter, etc., and it is not uncommon to have fresh fruits, when in season, set out on the breakfast table as well.

So let’s get our typical traditional French cuisine day begin, shall we?
