    Gallic cuisine is well known for its sophisticated and precise approach to food. Although, historically French dishes were heavily influenced by the Italian and Mediterranean cuisines. It wasn't until the 17th century that France began to truly develop its national cuisine into something truly unique. Signature and regional flavours were created, traditional techniques were perfected, and staple sauces like Béchamel were created to serve as delicious backbones to many a recipe. Whether you're indulging in a hearty lunch, or treating yourself to a full three-course evening meal, this culinary history can be seen and savoured today at French restaurants in Melbourne.
