Typical french family dinner - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Usually , a nice French meal would start with a good mushrooms soup or some cheese .
The main meal could be some beef / roast /charcuterie .
You end up having a dessert .
Oh yea... was about to forget , wine is a must .

Yea that's just completely inaccurate. Cheese as starter? Charcuterie as main? no

True, but what else can one expect from a Louis Vuitton Asian who stacks his jeans?

Is there anyone here that actually is french and grew up in France? Most of these answers don't make sense from my understanding.

Cheese would probably be as an after dinner thing. Obviously cheese can/would be incorporated in the cooked dishes but cheese alone is something eaten after dinner. I also understand that a salad would be served after the meal not before. However this is not what I am after. I want to learn more about common home cooked dishes.

Maybe because there is no one single answer. Different people, different regions have different customs

That's fine. I just want to start off with some examples. Tell me what were common dishes for dinner you had growing up in France.
