French Cooking 101

French chefs plan menus based on the availability of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Cooking with seasonal foods means you are using the freshest ingredients available and you'll taste more of the natural goodness of the food and get the most nutritional value too.

Typical French summer menus include a great variety of fresh produce - greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, green beans, peaches, pears, berries and plums, plus whole grains and protein. Shop your local farm markets and create your meals around what is in season in your area.
