Gourmet Foods from Europe

While American gastronomy is quickly rising to prominence on the global dining scene, with both homegrown chefs and international transplants stoking up foodie fervency across the country, there is still something to be said for the classic, sophisticated cuisine of the European continent. Combining centuries-old culinary tradition with cutting-edge innovation, modern European cooking is creative yet comforting, excitingly new yet refreshingly familiar. In our guide to the Gourmet Foods of Europe, we provide an introduction to the storied cuisine of the Old Country, including information on chefs and restaurants, and an index of foreign food terms. So whether or not you know your farfalle from your fusilli, we're sure you'll get a kick out of this great reference tool. Bon Appétit!
