It is not surprising that Paris is mentioned in the list. In addition to tradition food, modern Paris with new restaurants, wine bars, and travel lovers have made Paris more colorful with many ethnic restaurants—namely North African, Vietnamese–Laotian, Chinese, Spanish, and Japanese spots, which results in greater dishes.

Specialties you can try here is creamy fegatini (a chicken-liver spread) and ribollita (minestrone thickened with bread and beans and swirled with extra-virgin olive oil). And of course you can always drop in an enoteca (wine bar) during the day to enjoy the local atmosphere or just take a rest.

LOIRE VALLEY

Famous for its exceptional white wines, delicate fish, and France’s most plentiful fruits and vegetables, Loire is tinged with regional idetity. Good quality wines are attributed to the fine weather, which is calm and cool. Some representatives of local dishes are:  a perfect pike perch, called sandre, from the river, bathed in a silky beurre-blanc sauce; coq au vin prepared with a fruity red Sancerre; a tender fillet of beef in a Chinon red-wine reduction.

LYON
