Join us on our travels as we share experiences inspired by places, people, and the products that bring pleasure to the palate…a distinct connection between the land, culture and traditions.
Through our travels, we honor the special foods that are unique to a destination. We love what we do and – Oh! The Places We Go! – we want to pass that excitement on to our readers by combining our love and passion for all things French.
Follow French Food Travels, where we look at food as a form of art as well as recreation!
