But also something that stands out is its lovely gastronomy. Although french food is not as popular as Italian food for example, there are many dishes of French food that are extraordinary. Besides that also each region has its typical dishes and that is why we want to emphasize the north of france gastronomy, which is worth to recognize it.

It is interesting to know that from the north of France some cities belonged to Spain so its gastronomy has also Spanish influences, but also because of its proximity to Flanders has a great Belgian influence as well. Thus unlike other regions of France where the food is accompanied with a good glass of wine, in this area mainly in Nord Pas de Calais, the food is accompanied by a good beer. Also the climate plays an important role because it is most of the time quite cold, therefore the saucers are usually hot and are mainly dishes based on stewed meat.

Beer is used not only to accompany the main dish, but also is used to make it as shown in Carbonade Flamande, where the main meat is veal accompanied by some herbs such as thyme and laurel, with a little Salt and onion seasoned with beer of preference of bitter taste but with a certain lightness, thus this saucer must remain for a long time on low fire until obtaining the perfect stew. It is a very popular dish both in the north of France and throughout the region of Belgium.

It should be noted that there are 2 variants in terms of restaurants that can be found in the north of france gastronomy like Estaminet food, which are the representative dishes of the area, are traditional and regional, made in the same way as many years ago with wood ovens and served A very simple way, but that certainly these restaurant are extremely welcoming for anyone who wants to spend a pleasant time eating exquisite dishes.
