What would you consider classic "French" foods?

  1. All right, I was approached by a colleague one day and he asked why I never smoke French cuisine, only ribs and briskets and pig.

    My first response was "because im American and its my smoker", immediately after I drew a blank along the lines of ???.

    What exactly IS french cuisine.. I have been in france for many many years yet I have no idea why I never thought about it.

    Besides the obvious being frog legs (and if you have a good recipe on smoking some, im game!)

    what would you consider french food and how would you go about doing it?

    I would like to smoke (offset smoker) a magret canard, some beef bourguignon.. everything french but on the grill or in the smoker!

    Thanks!
