2: Introduction to French Food | The French consider food to be an art form. Therefore, many of their meals are very elaborate. Although they do have simple meals as well, many of the recipes from France are intricate and difficult to make. Several chefs in France believe in using local ingredients since they are fresher and don't require being shipped. In addition, areas of France that are next to neighboring countries often adapt some of that countries cuisine. Overall, French cooking is often tradition based. If you are dining in France, you will likely encounter a wide variety of meals and cooking styles. | 2
