Steaks (better than in UK)
Duck Liver salads

Normandy chicken with cream and cidre
Salad dressing (its ALWAYS great)
Foie Gras (yeah yeah yeah, dont bother with the goose sob story)
Brioche

Oh and French sweet cidre (sweet, appley and not too strong)

Also Grenadine cordial (why cant we get that in UK)

Canned french fried onions. They great on top of the frozen french cut green bean casserole.

I remeber a wonderful Cassoulets at a little restaurant within the walls of Carcassonne. But, I return to Boeuf Bourguignon time and time again. My Wife makes a mean one. Just a peasant at heart.

Confit de canard, creme caramel, croissants, and coffee.

I guess my taste in French food is alliterative :~)

Merci, Ursula...as I like both of those -- especially chèvre chaud -- as well!

I also second Jody's mention of bread from Poilâne. I wasn't familiar with Poilâne until I read an article about it in Smithsonian magazine a number of years ago. Paid a visit to it in 1996 and fell in love.

Here's an interesting bit from Poilâne's website...

The origin of the name POILÂNE probably dates back to the period when Pierre l'Ermite (1050-1115) was preaching the first crusade across Normandy on the back of a donkey. The local peasants surveyed his arrival and snatched grey hairs from his mount which became religious treasures. Hence, found in this region, were the Trois poils (the three hairs), the Poilgris (grey hairs) and the Poils de l'âne (the donkey's hairs) which apparently became abbreviated to Poilâne.
