  10. I love the luxurious classics, but it's the regional specialties that really intrigue me. Recently, I discovered Storzapretis, a Corsican gnocchi-like dish, and treats like Gâteau Basque now make regular appearances at my table.

  13. While I do enjoy Savory French food, I think where the cuisine excels is in its Pattiserrie : Macaroons, Eclairs, Croissants stuffed with chocolate, tarte tartine's, croquembouches. Oh Lord, I can go on for hours. Sigh! Drool!

  20. Both me & my husband love French cuisine and have been to couple of French restaurants. We had coriander crusted tuna and spiced long island duck breast at one restaurant and the taste was heavenly. The creme brulee we had there was just out of the world. I would love to learn duck confit and creme brulee
