French cuisine is known for its rich sauces, delicate pastries
and the simple passion for food, it wasnt always so. Until
early 1500s and the arrival of Queen Catherine de Médicis,
french cuisine was thought to be heavy, monotonous and overspiced.
Upon the queens arrival, she brought with her a large assortment
of cooks, bakers and confectioners. Since then France has made
beautiful culinary history, producing and trained such inspiring
chefs as Marie Antoine Carême, Auguste Escoffier and more
recently, the beloved Julia Childs.
