What is TRADITIONAL French Cooking?

Often seen as refined and complicated, French cuisine might seem intimidating to some.
However, home-made French food is very different from the food served in many contemporary French restaurants.

Most traditional recipes come from the countryside and were prepared by women who were busy working in the fields, in factories or running households and thus 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 exchanged frequently. Both she and her husband were brought up in French wine regions where they soon learnt that matching the right wine with the right food is an important part of any perfect meal.

When she arrived in Australia, Anne-Sophie Dubois brought that heritage with her by writing a French cookbook focused on traditional countryside and family meals.

Friday 3rd November 2017 - 6.30pm

South West

The South West of France is a rather heterogeneous region in terms of food and wine. With duck, foie gras and truffles aplenty in Bordeaux and the Périgord region, there is an emphasis on rich food. As one travels further south towards the Pyrenees, however, spicier dishes abound, with Basque and Spanish tastes having influenced the food there.
