You know, I love France. The language, the food, the history. I took two years of French in high school, and would have taken more if they had offered it. The cuisine is regarded as some of the finest in the world!
The point of this is our family's Around the World food tour. So far we have done Austria and England. This week, we are exploring France! After doing lots of research for traditional dishes that complement each other and don't take too many fancy ingredients, we settled on a menu. Blancs de Poulet au Fromage (chicken breasts with cheese), Ratatouille Nicoise (prepared the original way- without eggplant), Baguettes made from scratch, and crepes with sweetened whipped cream/cream cheese mixture and raspberries in sugar. We are very excited!
We are enjoying learning about new countries and sampling their food. The kids are expanding their palates and experiencing new tastes and textures. No picky eaters here!
Stay tuned to my food blog tomorrow for recipes and photos!
