What do the French eat for dinner?

Some of the most famous meals in France are frogs legs, and snails these two meals are the most well known. There are numerous delicious French appetizers, for example, 1. Croûte aux Morilles (my personal fav)2. Tarte au Fromage (Cheese Tart)

3. Truite au Vin Jaune (this one is VERY YUMMY)

and the Fondue!!!

Relatively few French eat frogs' legs and snails are an appetizer, not a meal.

The French eat a wide range of things for dinner, but very standard fare would be steak or veal, or various sorts of fish, often with fries or a salad in a restaurant, typically with potatoes or a vegetable at home. A meal for guests will typically be multi-course, but if it's only the family it might be an appetizer, a main course and then a few pieces of fruit, with or without wine.

However, in this case you could serve white with the seasfood dishes, poultry, and if you have beef stir fries then use red wines. Just put out both. Merlots are usually all good. The Chinese also have certain alcoholic beverages of their own so if you really want to stick to this cultural meal go onto: and type in: Chinese alcoholic beverages.

Why do the French eat snails?

According to the Larousse Gastronomique, snails have been popular since Roman times. Since France once was part of the Roman Empire, it may well be that the custom started then. What's more, the most common kind of snail eaten used to be that on vines, so it would have been readily available in wine country. Alan Davidson says they were included in the Menagier de Paris, a famous 14e c. cookbook, but had their ups and downs over the centuries in terms of popularity.


Snails is a traditional meal came from Roman empire, French cuisine is famous but there are a lot of countries where snail is a traditional meal and they eat it more than in France: some regions in Spain, Italy, Greece, England, Asia (they put snails in the soup), Africa (there are giant snails). Contrary to what one might think most of people don't eat snails in France.


It is believed that the edible snail or Roman snail was introduced to England during the Roman occupation. In Gloucestershire they are known as wall fruit.

i have had snails and they are good. The Greeks also eat snails. the French like snails, that's why.

Most of the same foods that are available in North America can also be found in Paris. Crepes are a common (and addicting) snack that is inexpensive and available on almost every street corner. One can even say that crepe stands are to Paris as hot dog stands are to Manhattan. Bread and wine are also common snacks. Ham and cheese crepes, croissants, or sandwiches are a common lunch. For dinner, beef, cheesy potatoes, escargot, fondue, and cheese platters are common menu options. However, popular American options such as french fries and pizza are easily found in Paris, as well.
