It is said that French food is the best food in the world, and French wine, likewise. Well, they would say that, wouldn't they? And for a very long time it has been true.

Today, however, things are changing, and while French food and drink remains among the best you’ll get anywhere – in 2016, 42 restaurants received their first Michelin star – it now has many rivals.

But don’t let that deter you. Come to France, indulge a little, maybe a little too much sometimes. See how the French like to dine, what they eat, what they drink. One thing is certain: whatever the rest of the world may be doing, the French are still ploughing their own particular furrows.

The wines and spirits of France

The wines of France are the product of the so-called terroir, that indefinable ‘everything’ that contributes to the end product. But French wines are also interwoven with the history and culture of the whole country.
