Everyone has their favorite food, for example, you may not like the same foods as your friends. Imagine that across the globe. From the United Kingdom to Egypt, what are everyone else’s favorite foods?



France is famous for three foods: frog legs, baguettes, and Escargots. Frog legs/Cuisses de Grenouilles are normally consumed hot and prepared with garlic butter, parsley sauce, tomato, garlic, and onion base. The meat of a frog leg is very soft and delicate, mainly eaten in the south of France. In France, baguettes are served as saucers and the sauce covers the entire loaf.  Then, before they finish eating the bread, they take the last small bite and wipe the plate clean with it. Finally, herb butter snails or Escargots de Bourgogne are presented cooked with garlic butter and parsley in their shell, and a skewer is provided. Then they are served on a special Escargot tray. 

France is known for their famous Escargot.
