Sample regional cooking in Perth's French restaurants
It can be argued that there is no one French cuisine. Instead, each region of France has its own distinct techniques and signature dishes. If you enjoy rich food, you may prefer dishes from southwest France. Here, centered around the rich wine country of Bordeaux, you can find recipes making use of local foie gras, duck, oysters, truffles and mushrooms. In the northwest, the food of Normandy majors on seafood, apples and Camembert, while next door Brittany is home to the celebrated crepe. In the northeast you’ll find excellent charcuterie and sauces made from local champagne, while the east boasts the world famous Quiche Lorraine. If you enjoy a hearty stew, Burgundy is the place to head, with the famous local wine influencing the region's signature dishes of boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin. Food from the south of France, meanwhile, is influenced by Spain and the Basque region, with cassoulet and piperade being two well-known local favourites. You can find all of these and much more in Perth's excellent French restaurants.
