Food of France

I have been wanting to do a post like this for quite a while now.  It does have to be said if there's one thing the French do very well it's food.  There's so much here that I enjoy eating and it's easy to get access to great food.  Whilst not always cheap the food is usually always of a great quality.  Eating out in restaurants is also nearly always a fantastic experience because there is always a good 'forumle' which is a set menu that usually clocks in for around €15-25 depending on where you eat, and you get three choices for your starter, main and dessert.  

My favorite place in Montpellier to eat is at Entrecôte which only serves entrecôte steak.  Entrecôte in French is a word that denotes a premium cut of beef used for steaks.  You choose how you want your steak cooked and it gets served with the most amazing steak chips, plus you get a salad as a starter.  I always have my steak à point (medium rare) and it is always cooked to perfection.  The other ways you can have your steak cooked are: bleu (extra rare), saignant (rare), demi-anglais (medium) and bien cuit (well done).  The meat comes in a 'secret sauce' the restaurants keeps the ingredient list to itself.  For me it tastes like garlic heaven.  There are Entrecôte restaurants in Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes and Toulouse, but I'm sure you can get entrecôte style dishes in any good French restaurants, I really recommend it (obviously not if you're a vegetarian).

There is always a huge hype around French food and in a way it is true, a lot of effort goes into food here and a lot of emphasis is put on good and fresh produce which is the basis of all this lovely food that I have been eating here.  It's a miracle that I haven't gained a tonne since I came in September.
