The legendary French Riviera
There are places with evocative names whose attraction transcends borders. They evoke beauty, lifestyle and history. The ancient city of Nice is one of them. And the whole region known as the French, or "Côte d’Azur" in France.
Famous today for its beaches, its landscapes nestled between sea and mountains, its idyllic climate, the Riviera evokes thousands of tastes and smells. Fig trees, olive trees, mimosa, and lavender are sublimated by the song of cicadas and locusts. This festival of colours can be found on the plates with colourful and tasty specialities. But where does the myth of the French Riviera come from?
Brasserie and bouchon lyonnais
Brasserie and bouchon lyonnais: the best places for typical French food.
The assertion that French cuisine is famous is an understatement. For decades, the excellency of French cooking has reached the pinnacle, thanks to gastronomy guides like the “Guide Michelin”.
French classes in France will certainly help you read those guides, and looking at the menus will make you salivate for hours.
Many cooks became worldwide stars thanks to their talent, ingenuity and spirit of avant-garde.
French people’s favorite dish is not very french… or is it?
For many years, in most polls that ask the French population about their favorite dish, one stands out among the others. The surprise is that this meal may not sound very French to most people: the famous couscous. This is not what you may have expected from your French cooking courses in France.
Learning French language and cooking in France
As a major part of the French language learning process, the daily use of new vocabulary or grammar is important.
Thus, we have implemented, as a part of our curriculum, a French cooking school inside our institution in the Villa Beaulieu.
