The topic that I have decided on for my French project is French cuisines. I picked this topic because I think it is so interesting how American food differs from French foods in so many ways. Some things that make French cuisines stand out to me is how they look, how pretty they look, and how sometimes when you get the smallest dessert or pastry it cost some much for that little bit. I never really understood why they cost so much I just think it is because of the ingredients they use.
One of the websites that I went to talked about what different kinds of foods and specialties they have in France. Some of the national cuisines were Steak frities, baguettes, and Crème brulee. Some of the regional cuisines are Champagne and Andouillette.
Steak frities is basically just steak and fries, that is usually served in an relaxed, up scale setting restaurant. Baguettes which probably everyone knows what it is, but it is a long thin loaf of French bread. Something that I have always wanted to try is crème brulee. It is a dessert consisting of a rich custard that has a layer of honey on top of it that gives it that crispy/burnt-like look to it. The next one, Champagne, is a sparkling wine produced in the Champagne regions of France. last but not least is Andouillette, which is a coursed-grained sausage made with pork, intestines, and seasoning. In my opinion these foods sound very good and delicious, and one day I hope I can actually go to France to taste these cuisines myself and I hope you will be able to.
I found all of my information of these foods on Wikipedia:Creme Brulee and Steak and frities this is the website that I got my info on for these foods. Another website that I used was AFTouch cuisines for info on Champagne. I went to the website Regions of France for Andouillette. And last but not least I went to France This Way for info on Baguettes.
