WITH these DELICIOUS french FOOD recipes

French food is said to be the best food in the world and one of the healthiest diets too. So what could be better than to give your family and friends the very best of French food with lashings of love stirred through it?

From beautiful sea food, poultry and meat dishes, wonderful cheeses, colourful fruit and vegetables, scrumptious pastries, breads to soak up your soups, and the finest wines to wash it down with – the French have it all.

There is also the prevalent notion that cooking French food is somehow imbued with a mystery; that if it isn't cooked by the French, in France, then it isn't French food. Well, on one level that might be right, for example, fish and chips cooked in Marseille would never count as British fish and chips no matter how good they were.

So what LOVE FRENCH FOOD aims to do is to provide you with the recipes you need to get as close to authentic French food as is possible in your own kitchen, and to help you to –


Although France is mainly a meat eating nation, they also have an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables every day. If you have visited France you will have seen the many varieties of fresh fruit and vegetables available in all regions.

The salad vegetables are fantastic and often include fresh herbs to make them even healthier.
