France's Menu!

France's favorite traditional foods and drinks are something you should have an idea of if you ever visit France. Their mealtimes are the same as ours, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but before you do anything else wouldn't you want to start the day off with a nice breakfast? In France most people just start with simple bread and milk. Then at lunch you would probably see people just eating salads, or sandwiches. People also favor the baguette, a french bread. Finally at dinner, most people would most likely eat pasta. For drinks during celebrations like festivals people would probably drink wine. So visit France for delicious traditional french food!
