If you’re looking to get your eat on while visiting France, this is a list of must-try foods that made France famous. Put your eating pants on!
All French cheeses rightly deserve recognition, but it is this creamy, pungent little star that really puts it on the map. It’s a versatile cheese, served in both sweet and savory dishes, in a sandwich (often with walnuts), baked in its balsa container and used as a dip for bread, or just on its own on a plate after dinner.
