The capital enjoys accommodating many specialities from all over France in its shops and restaurants. But that doesn’t mean it forgets about its own local recipes and products! Gougères with champignons de Paris (savoury choux pastry with button mushrooms), Opéra cake and Brie de Meaux tart… savoury and sweet delights await your discovery on Cookidoo®.
Sun-kissed recipes characterise this city's cuisine. Fall for panisses (chickpea chips), a creamy bouillabaisse or even aïoli to accompany your dishes!
Often considered THE foodie capital of France, Lyon is filled to the brim with restaurants and recipes that you shouldn’t miss out on. Sausage in brioche is one such example: as surprising as it is delicious.
Former capital of Brittany, Nantes has maintained a successful mixture of flavours from both land and sea. Lamb's lettuce soup with Curé Nantais (cheese), Nantes-style cake, Breton-style mussels… the possibilities are endless!
The pink city is also famous for the Violette de Toulouse, a purple sweet that is a local classic. If you think of Toulouse, you think of duck: duck magret (duck breast) and foie gras.
Head north for convivial, comforting cuisine that will bring a smile to your face. Beer is an ingredient of choice, particularly in Flemish beef stew or locally adapted Welsh rarebit.
