French food, while not as widespread as Italian or Mexican, is famous for being very tasty. Sure, French wines are known the world over, but the baked, grilled, and sautéed goods coming from France are just as good. French language translation is important when talking about French food outside of France, especially since many Anglophones aren’t all that familiar with French-language food terms.
One of the reasons French cuisine has a great reputation, but many people lack a general knowledge about many specific items, is cost. French restaurants are well known for being pricier than the average Chinese, Italian, or Mexican joint. Sure, we’ve all heard of baguettes, escargot, filet mignon, and foie gras, but French culture offers so much more in the way of food.
