Look at French mortgages to enjoy French culinary delights

Despite being the ultimate stereotypical French food, frogs are actually a protected species in France so all frogs’ legs are actually imported. Contrary to popular belief, the dish is also not that common in France – only around 60g of frogs’ legs per person is eaten each year.

Snails, however, are widely enjoyed by the French and France is the biggest snail consumer in the world with 40,000 tons consumed each year. Often fried in butter with garlic, parsley and spices, snails are a delicacy across France and often appear on the menu.

If however the thought of eating snails and frogs’ legs does not appeal, there is a variety of other wonderful dishes that can be enjoyed. Cassoulet is another very famous but slightly less controversial French dish which will undoubtedly tantalise your taste buds. Similar to a stew, the cassoulet is made from sausages, bacon and beans as well as other vegetables and topped with a baguette and sealed with goose fat.
