The Secrets of a Beautiful Table

The visual appearance of the table is as important as the taste of the dishes. Put a baguette, a pitcher of water, and a fresh fruit platter on the table for a traditional French ambiance. Add a candle or two for a cozy effect.

The Art of Matching Guests

a French meal is much more than a time to eat delicious food, it is an excuse for socializing and discussing. To make this moment more enjoyable, make sure you place your guests in an interesting way.

In which Order Should I Serve Dishes?
