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.
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.
