Pork. It’s such a mainstay of French cuisine, that it’s frankly impossible to conceive of French food culture without it.
Every thing from saucisson to saucisses, fried, grilled, cured, dried, you name it, the French have a way of eating pork like that.
It goes back to the time of the Gauls, you know, Asterix and his lads, roasting wild boar on spits.
