50 French Dishes | Alyssa Pacaut

Classic French cuisine will always have a special place in my heart. If not for the craft and tradition, then the focus on high quality ingredients and, well, all that butter.

And so, I present you with a list. A list of all lists, really. One that took a very long time to craft and cultivate. Any Francophile worth their salt is probably familiar with some of these dishes, but hopefully there are a few new ones that you can try out.
