Cheeses are one of French cuisine’s proudest boasts and many diverse types are available: amongst the most famous are Camembert, with a tender and perfumed texture made between pieces of wood; Chèvre, based on goat’s milk; Roquefort, a type of gorgonzola from sheep’s milk seasoned to be spicy; Brie de Meaux, with white crust and a tender and creamy texture, along with so many others.
French sweets are numerous and for the most part based on creams made from milk and egg or Chantilly: one can distinguish Beignets, with fruit or cream filling; Charlottes (cakes filled with fruit); Crepes; Soufflés; Mont Blanc, a typical chestnut purée with whipped cream.
French leavened pastries are excellent and found in their simplest form in the Brioche, more elaborately in the Croissant and more refined still in Rum Baba. French wines have always enjoyed a well-deserved fame: Bordeaux wines produced in the Garonne basin; Bourgogne wines produced in the Saone basin; Champagne, perhaps the most famous of all French wines, produced to the north of the Reims-Epernay-Chalons triangle; and Beaujolais, produced to the north of Lyons, along with so many others.
