Hello to you ! So like everybody know, I come from Alsace. I came back there for the holidays. The culinary specialty ? Ohh… So there is many things… The traditional choucroute, baeckeoffe (or Flamekueche like you all say), kougelhopf, the Munster cheese. We have also a lot of Christmas biscuits. And to drink, we have many wine, red and white, creamery and different sort of schnapps. I know that I say just a piece of the culinary specialty.

Hello Elise !
I come from Le Mans. The city is mostly known because of the mythic car race of the 24 hours of Le Mans. But we also have a culinary speciality which is the "rillettes" of Le Mans and also the chicken "Poulet de Loué" ! It's a small city so we don't have many specialities... Hum, let's see... we also have the "potée sarthoise" you can check the recipe online if you're interested in cooking it Wink
What about you?  
Happy end of holidays Wink

I come from Melun (it's next to Paris). In "Ile de France" we don't have specialities, mainly typical dishes. There are more small specialty like cheeses. In Melun we can found "Le Brie", it's a cheese it's like Camembert.

I come from Chadurie (it's next to Angoulême Very Happy ). We have many specialities, like Cognac, Pineau, Cornuelles, Pine of Barbezieux, Grillons charentais, ... Cornuelle are triangular pastry biscuits with anise seeds. It was during Palm Sunday they are sold. A Barbezieux, they make other cornuelles; they are shaped like pine cones and are made with dough puffs flavored with orange blossom. It's Pine of Barbezieux.

I come from Marly le roi (next to Versailles), and as Cecilia said we don't really have specialities in Ile de France, but classics like Parisian baguette, Macarons, chouquettes, Opéra cake (and many others), and in alcool the Grand Marnier (very good in crepes or cocktails !)

what I'm learning is that Paris lacks it's own culture and identity.

Julie : I had never heard of schnapps. I went on the net and now, I know...

Charlène : I don't know "the potée sarthoise". I will check the recipe online.

Morgane : Last year, I taste "Grillons charentais", I like this product! This was very good.

Cécilia and Manon : You don't have a lot of specialities but you live near Paris, so you have others things like Eiffel tower, the Louvre museum and many other things.

Personnaly, I come from brittany and there is a lot of specialities in my area. First of all, buckwheat pancake and crêpe. Thank you not to confuse, it's not the same thing. Wink
We also have "galette saucisse", it's unavoidable when you come to see a football match.
You can also find salted butter caramel, far breton, Kouign-amann and cider.

Enjoy your meal with a photo of a crepe with salted butter caramel ! Very Happy

Many cities in China, and even a village, there will be hundreds of local characteristics of food.I come from Tian Jin. As a northern coastal city,the cuisine of TianJin mainly to "salty" and "fresh" two flavors. Most of the specialties are seafood,with a heavier taste. In addition, in Tianjin, a total of 34 kinds of breakfast, I could eat a week without repetition...

In Ivory Coast there are tons of specialities but the main ones include bananas and manioc (also called cassava or yuca, it's a root). We have foutou (a banana and manioc "bread"), that we eat with different stews such as Copè, Kédjénou and a sauce made with peanut paste. We also eat alloco (it's pretty much fried bananas, one of my favourites!), you have to dip it in a spicy tomato sauce for it to be perfect!

As for drink I really like to drink bissap (a drink made by infusing dried hibiscus flowers in water) and gnamakoudji ( it's basically ginger paste dilluted with water and a lot of sugar!)

That's for my mother's side. As for my father he's from Brittany and Normandy so you've already mentioned the specialities Wink

P.S.: Chinese food is amazing

Hello everyone!
I come from Loraine and in this area there is the famous "Quiche Loraine", a kind of pizza. Then we have the "Madelaine", a delicious little cake. We have the fruit "Mirabelle" and with this fruit we do tarts and also alcohol. We also have the "Baba au Rhum", a dessert with rum, but I don't like it, I don't like dessert made with alcohol.

We have got oysters, and '' Cagouillles'' (snails in Charentais). Hmmm juste some good delicacies...
