French food ranges from rustic, regional dishes to elaborate, haute cuisine – and everything in between. At one end of the spectrum are the French ingredients and traditions of rural France: grape pressing, salt harvesting, espelette pepper and slow cooked stews. At the other end of the scale is Paris’ tradition of fine dining: rich confits, morel mushrooms, thick roux and gold-brushed croquembouches. Choose gourmet French food, from fine patissier’s Valrhona chocolate to Christine Ferber jams. And French cooking ingredients from snails to fine vinegars and cold pressed olive oils.
