Gastronomy relates to the guidance and advice on what food to eat or drink, in what manner, and in which arrangement. As an “ art of living”, gastronomy enables human beings to develop skills, knowledge, and abilities relating to the kind of foods and drinks and to their selection, which promotes the enjoyment, pleasure, and satisfaction of both eating and drinking (Rolls, 1993).
By reading and analyzing the information on French Gastronomy I have come to understand that a large factor in French cooking is tradition. The French always keep tradition in mind when they are preparing their dishes. The French culinary artists view their cooking as a sort of art and philosophy.
