French gastronomy explores the relationship between food and culture. Talented chefs select quality products with flavors that harmonize well together creating dishes that reflect the diversity of regions and terroir.  The marriage between food and wine along with the aesthetics of the table complement the food to create the ultimate French dining experience. As explained in this gastronomos blog, to taste French gastronomy is to taste ‘l’art-de-vivre à la française’ (the french way of life).

You will find a broad selection of culinary magazines and engaging videos on Culturethèque to take you to the next level on your French gastronomic journey. Check out the Gastronomie et Vins section to find  wonderful magazines such as Cuisine et Vins that introduce you to  famous chefs sharing their favorite recipes and wines or Elle a Table to learn about the secrets of a well set french table.

Or you can watch this curated collection of videos  that follow the travels of the French series Les Carnets de Julie as she finds all of the best regional recipes and terroirs to create delicious dishes that blend the talents of amazing guest chefs, growers and  artisans. Enjoying listening to native French speakers explain the secrets of French gastronomy while exploring the beautiful countryside regions and history.
