more about like food and good stuff so without further ado let's get started with some food and the first one the most famous food here is fromage with Hamas cheese in French this is really important in France we eat a lot of cheese and it's not like any kind of cheese you know when you do when you eat in France there is you can do a full course which means you do okay pluck Amash deserve it means like first course main dish cheese dessert so this is quite common to do that in France and personally with my family I do that every day so you start with some entree like salads or tomatoes and then you've got the main dish and then some cheese and that's what is interesting here you can eat like any kind of cheese usually you add bread with it but you eat you cheese like that and there are many many different kind of cheese in France and usually it's original stuff it means like depending on where you are in France so this is a super nice model de France nation and then depending on where you are you will find some famous cheese's and like the most famous one you can find them everywhere but some of them are really difficult to find sometimes so there are many different kind of cheese here or some adjectives that you can use to describe cheese the fromage I do like the cheese is hard sometimes the cheese is hard it's do sometimes it's soft with Coomassie a new stuff homage moo moo or sometimes it's creamy homage Kim - Kim creamy and also you know cheese French is sometimes really smelly and you have to say in French the fromage suffer like a strong smell it's smelly you say that usually inference the former some faux reform as some faux and I would like you to know more about two different cheese that are quite famous and the first one is personally my favorites Luke country country country is from this region in France France Conti which you can notice it the name of the region country country same so here is a map of friends and consequently is somewhere here so one a it's for stands for this country so this is really good and this is a hard cheese of combat judo and then you've got this one camembert also quite famous which is from Normandy normal is over there this cheese is more creamy than Conte like the I run the cheese it's quite hard but when you courage it's creamy inside and really good and the more smelly it is the more creamy it is so here are for some cheese of course there are so many cheese's you can check by yourself for more cheese's let's move on to the next one bread or in French but you probably all know this cliche about friends baguettes like old French people or always with their baguette under their arms but it's not a cliche like personally I used to buy a baguette every day like not all French people are doing that but personally I do that so yeah that's the most common bread in France and my favorite personally baguette this like you I guess you all know what is it I get so this and usually you go to a bread shop called in France and Boone re you can find them like almost everywhere in France it's really common and that's why I can buy my bread everyday by going there but in Boulanger you can also find some quests on or other kinds of bread here are two other kind of breads that or white come on I guess this one is the second most common turn the companion but the companion it's like a kind of bowl you see and in English maybe you would say from house bread so in French the companion like companion under companion so this is those tools are quite famous and you can find them in almost all boulangerie all bread shop so this is quite common and here is like what you can call sandwich bread in in America but in France you have to say unto me and it's quite different like those tools are really hard like you remember we can also use these adjectives for bread like this is quite hard but here it's really soft and you all know can you you can find that everywhere in the world like when you say that like to me it's not like real bread like for for me when you say bread those two breads appears in my mind so this is not bread and usually you can do sandwich with that but in France you use usually baguette or pant copani if you want to do some sandwiches and I really like doing sandwiches with a baguette this is so good and you should try it so this is bread and maybe you wonder how we eat the bread so first I said like sometimes sandwiches but that's not the most common way we ate it during the commercial step like we eat cheese and bread like it's classic you have your piece of cheese and a piece of bread and you eat them together but you can also eat them for breakfast and you put some jam and some butter and you eat that this is quite common in France or sometimes we you know you drink that with your cup of coffee you've got you your red and your coffee and you eat them together and also when it's the time for the main dish for the plow you have some pieces of bread usually like a crow on the table and you can eat them like that like it's really common like I think it's a bit similar to rice in Asian countries here bread you eat like you can eat that eat bread at any moment during your meal especially during the main dish though this is bread those twos were quite general food but no I would like to talk about more regional food that's why I decided to draw a map so here are some other foods that or regional regional food like French food is really regional so let's first start with Virginia Beth Virginia is from the region called Bourgogne you probably know this region like in English you say Burgundy and this is quite famous for white wine and it's over here so here is the Burgundy region burgundy and like this play is quite famous over there but you can eat that everywhere in France but originally is from this region so it consists in a beef stood in red wine so if you want to explain that in French you would say both me to take over who's deaf me to take over who the F stands for beef miss your tail is like stewed and the huge red wine let me go to Yahoo and usually you add with your beef you add some other ingredients like pommes de terre we just put it out put it is totally those onions like oh no oh no oh no and some carrots carrot carrot so this or the main ingredients that you can find when you cook a bit booking you this is quite famous in France and next one let's move on to another region which is this region is called Levin and this food is called quiche sometimes quiche Levin quiche Lorraine is a specific kind of quiche but probably the most famous one and Levin is this region so here you can find quiche or quiche Lorraine it consists in a tort like that and you cook the chart with eggs and cream and you add also on top of it cheese and some Bacon's but you can choose other ingredients but that the come on recipe so in French you would say that avec de su do like hem du fromage in the Latin that advic dessert de la creme du fromage a gelato so here tart tart quite easy F eggs cream cream cheese I forgot to write it here in English but you have format is cheese and here lardo bacon some sort of bacon it's not like the exact translation but in France it's a really specific kind of bacon like usually it's some some matches of meat so here is like this the quiche and usually you can eat that like when it's hot but you can after cooking it you can just wait and eat it cold and it is quite good as well so it's up to you you can choose so let's move on to the next one this is gratin dauphinois like from the south east region and maybe if you know the name of the city Grenoble which is close to Leo over there you can you can find this plate quite famous but personally I'm not from this region and I can eat like gratin dauphinois is quite a common plate so you don't need to go there if you want to try a gratin dauphinois it consists in some pommes de terre so you remember potatoes and you slide them like Tasha pommes de terre crochet sliced potatoes and you cook them you back them in in milk like don't you let pommes de terre Tasha acquit don't you let Crete don't let baked in milk so here is some kind of drawing you see this the plate and here are all the sliced potatoes and you just add milk and of course some salt and sometimes peppers and it's up to you but this is the classic recipe yeah milk and then you just beg that and you've got your meal got tons of you know it's quite easy but quite good and you should try if you can have the opportunity to find it let's move a little next one which is ratatouille you probably all know the movie ratatouille the Disney movie but hits a name this is name of a plate in France and it's from Provence Provence Provence is a region over here so number six is over here six like it's close to nice if you know the name of the city this ratatouille is like something you eat more in summer but it's hot it consists in some stew like it's a stewed vegetables dish so in France you would say how good a legume hagu kagu the lagoon so ragu sorry Raghu stands for stewed and legume stands for vegetables and here all the classic vegetables you're going to use if you want to do like a classic and like an authentic authentic ratatouille you need to know all those ingredients if you want to be real French like for your own ratatouille the five main ingredients in ratatouille or those ones first is tomato tomato - Matt - Matt then Colette which means zucchini correct then aubergine aubergine eggplant aubergine then onion we've seen this one before onion in French oh no oh no oh no a bit different and then garlic which is in French I i short word I okay so those five ingredients are always in a classic ratatouille so let's move on to the next one which is I'm sure you know it's clip from the the region over there which is boo Tonya go Tonya so maybe you know like sweet cap like you add some sugar or some jam or anything but here is a bit different this is crepes Alec which is salted cup of crepes salted crepes kept Sally cut Sally the main difference with like a sweet clip is that you use buckwheat buckwheat which is in French Salazar Salazar so you cook your your you crepes with this sahaja and you can call it as well crepes Arizona kept Asahi's oh crap Oh Sara's on so you can say that and you eat that like as a main dish and it's not a dessert like it's a main dish and the classic kept like the classic classic crab salad would be with Zhang F fromage like cabbage almost homage kept jumbled espanish which means like crap like ham egg cheese crap so you can say that like in restaurants in many restaurants like not only here but like over there those really good but I'm in every restaurant where you can have kept there is always this classic like rumble of homage from so yeah jumbo is ham F egg and fromage cheese cheese we've seen that before and here is like a kind of growing here is like the folded the folded Creek trap and here is in red New York and like some ingredients over there but I'm like you can like zero there are some specialized shops which are called Kepley Kepley okay pervy Shepley this is like a crepe shop and its really common over there and even though in old friends in the hole friends and over there you can like have you men dish you plop which is a type like a salted crap and then for dessert you can have your sweet crap and in those shops like there are many different kind of crap and there's this classic but you can also find like with salman with chorizo or mushrooms you can find a lot of different kind of type so you should try it and it's not like a plate a plate that you try once and that's it that's a plate that you can try a lot of times because it's always different and then let's move on to another one chocolate which is not originally a French food this is from Switzerland here but the influence of this plate was quite important and it's really famous in France in whore friends now but in this region it was really famous like it's plate that is supposed to be eaten by people living in mountains so over there there is like it's really there are a lot of maintains and this is a classic plate so like if you ask french people they would probably say that Hakluyt is something french because we like eating chocolate in winter huckle 'it is the name of the plate but also the name of the specific cheese that you use when you do Hakluyt like it is the Huckle it consists in putting some cheese like some melted cheese on some potato so here it's your plate there is this potato and you add this melted cheese on it so this is like the base but you don't eat like that usually you eat like a lot of potato like it's kind of social activity where you take you put it over like there is a plate whisper you know you each person take the potato and then add the cheese on it and you do you do that like a lot of times and you discuss with people so this is like a really social plate and usually you eat that with charcuterie charcuterie which is a kind of like a lot of hands like sausage or ham and like a lot of meat like we have 2 different ways to say sausage in French you can say so see sometimes or suicune which are two different kind of sausages and you can buy all that in Russia you can go to the Boucher and if you go there you can buy all that it it is called in English like butcher shop and yeah like it's also quite common in France and you can eat shaft 2/3 so circuitry is off it like is almost always mixed with chocolate but like it's also something that we like eating like for as an entree first course like you've got a plate with some some ham some sausage and you can eat that together so yeah that's quite common and usually that's one of the most favourite food for French people like it's not a real meal like you don't cook a lot but like it's a plate with a lot of different kind of meat and a lot of French people like it and the last one let's move on to the last one which is from Paris and a quite recent dish it is named as Shiva mochi at the end of the 19th century the potatoes in France were supposed to be any any in a table like you can't eat it but someone called Pavarotti while I was living in Paris decided to create a dish made of pererro and this dish would be so delicious that everybody was gonna will eat potatoes and will understand that you can eat potatoes so it consists in like a mix of potato and some chopped beef so in French you would
