21 French Foods Americans Need To Try At Least Once

How can you live your life without Cassoulet?



This stew made of slow-booked beans, duck confit and sausages is one of the most delicious dishes in the world and the best way to end a cold winter day. It breaks my heart but I’ve yet to find a decent version of it in the US.

Also called an apricot croissant in some parts of France, the oranais is a flaky treat filled with custard and topped with two apricot halves.


Chestnut jam

Chestnuts are a winter favorite in France, whether they’re roasted or candied. Chestnut jam is one of the best exemples of how good the French are at using that nut to its full potential. It’s excellent and goes well on crêpes and breads alike.




Brie and Camembert are fine and all but they’re not the only French cheeses out there. France produces literally hundreds of different cheeses. I picked Reblochon, which is EXCELLENT, but I could have also chosen Bethmale, Beaufort, Brique, Fourme d’Ambert, Maroilles, etc: All amazing cheeses that remain mostly unknown in the US.

I am a self-proclaimed Champion Cook, who gets the confidence to call myself that way from the love and praises showered upon me by my family consisting of a Cute little Daughter and a husband who loves the Internet more than me (LoL..) and who incidentally happens to be the man behind the technical aspects of my blog. I love working from home and the benefits that come from it and that is what prompted me to start my own Blog at http://thetastesofindia.com where I document all my adventures with cooking. Follow me on my journey..
