Join me on a culinary tour of four delicious French regions in my article, A Taste of Home, recently published in Living France!

France’s culinary landscape is extraordinarily diverse. Each corner of the country boasts delectable products and traditional dishes that reflect its
terroir and are part of its identity. Just think of a hearty choucroute garnie from Alsace, a fragrant coq au vin from Burgundy, a sunny ratatouille from Nice or a richly filled cassoulet from the Languedoc. All of these dishes are part of France’s immense gourmet repertoire.
Because food is such an integral part of French culture, getting to know France means discovering its varied cuisine.

In my recently published article in Living France (January 2018), I take you on a culinary tour of four French regions. Here’s what you can expect:
