Mediterranean cuisine for every day

13th Mediterranean Cooking Event – France

8 comments Oct 10th, 2010 | By | Category: Blogevents, Recipes

Albania was a toug one, I have to admit. I am sure you will find it much easier finding recipes for our new topic: France. There are lots of books, websites and blogs about French food.

The French cuisine also had its influences throughout history. It was Katharina di Medici, for example, that brought the Italian couisine to France in 1547.

The French cuisine is famous for its sauces such as Béchamel and Sauce Béarnaise, but also for it soups like the Bouliabaisse. Trying to name all dishes France is famous for would not make sense, I am sure you are much better in doing so.

Start date is the 10th of October 2010.
End date is the 10th of November 2010.

I am glad that I could find a great classic cookbook by Julia Child that fits the event very well:

“Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 1″
