The French are world-renowned for their cuisine. Many French restaurants in the United States serve rich, complex dishes, often with creamy sauces. Delicious though these foods are, the average French person does not eat such rich foods day in and day out. Nevertheless, many of the more commonly found dishes are very tasty.
