What is TRADITIONAL French Cooking?
Often seen as refined and complicated, French cuisine might seem intimidating to some.
However, homemade French food is very different from food served in many French restaurants.
Most traditional recipe come from the countryside and were prepared by women who were busy working in the fields, in factories or running houses and had little time to cook fancy food.
There is often a story behind each of these recipes, and each region in France has its own traditional dishes.
Anne Sophie Dubois comes from a French family where cooking and enjoying food is a serious business.
Everyone in her family cooks and recipes are regularly exchanged. both she and her husband were brouht up in wine regions in France and learned soon that matching the right wine with the right food is an important part of a perfect meal.
When she arrived in Australia, Anne-Sophie Dubois brought with her that heritage, and she decided to write a French cookbook, focused on countryside and family meals.

The South West of France is a rather heterogeneous region in terms of wines and food. With duck, foie gras and truffles around Bordeaux and in the Perigord region, emphasis is placed on rich foods. Further south, in the Pyrenees mountains area, spicier dishes are found, with Basque and Spanish tastes having influenced the food there.Tickets for this session:
