French cuisine is one of the reasons why I came to live in France two years ago. Indeed, I've always been fascinated by the gastronomic diversity which makes this beautiful country proud. I remember the first time that I heard someone mention that French people ate snails... At the time, my reaction hadn't been "Yuck!", but rather "I wonder what that tastes like..."! Another aspect that I particularly appreciate is the way French people cook their meat. What I mean is that they leave it red in the middle, and even a bit bloody most of the time. That makes a change [for me] from my mother who can't refrain from charring everything that resembles red meat!

Getting that for you now...
