This is one of the most popular and common French foods. It is a dish made of chicken that is braised with wine, mushrooms, bacon, onion, garlic, and sometimes brandy.



This dish is considered French comfort food. It consists of white beans that are stewed slowly with different meats such as pork, duck, sausage, goose, mutton, and whatever else the chef has lying around. It is traditionally baked in a pot called a “cassole,” which is shaped like an inverted cone.

Chocolate soufflé

A delicious dessert, this dish is an airy, baked egg recipe that is savory and sweet. It features a crispy chocolate crust and creamy chocolate center.
