- Up on the list has to be Les Moules-frites which adorns the menus of many brassieres across France. This Mussels and fries dishes are especially popular in the north and north west areas of the country.
- A classic French dish which has become just as popular in the UK during the winter as it is in France is that of Le Boeuf Bourguignon – or Beef Burgundy. Beef steak is braised in Burgundy red wine and is served along with its rich gravy with a variety of sides including vegetables, dumplings and mashed potatoes.
- Coquilles Saint-Jacques is a beautifully created and presented dish. Scallops are served inside their original (carefully cleaned of course) shell. They are poached in a white wine sauce and are usual placed on a layer of mushroom puree.
- Salade Lyonnais comes from the Lyon region and is definitely a salad dish to try in the summer months. Tomato, smoked bacon, an egg and crispy crotons are layered on top of leaves of curly lettuce. It certainly beats a bit of lettuce in a bowl!
