Thank you for sharing your experience,


I am new to French culture and quite excited to learn and understand their tradition and culture. I have been in France a year now and experimented cooking french dishes which aren't much complicated. I found them comparatively easy and unique! During Christmas I find cheese based dishes like raclette and tartiflette. Also slow cook pork and sausages and ofcourse 'Vin chaud' (mulled wine). I am sure there are plenty more.
Way more to soak up and learn about this beautiful culture.
