Fabulous French Fare!

The French have one of the richest culinary histories in the world. They've given us great wines, classic bistro fare like steak frites and french onion soup, and don't forget their delicious desserts like crepes and souffle. To honor the great French dishes, we've assembled a start-to-finish menu that'll have you shouting oh-la-la!

While it may seem daunting to prepare an entire French meal at home, that's not the case when you focus on simple & delicious bistro fare as opposed to haute cuisine. The key is to use fresh ingredients and focus on rustic simplicity. And, don't forget to practice your best French accent. Mais oui!

To help you assemble a well-rounded French menu, we fired up the FoodPair search engine and found the best French dishes from across the Web.
