French cuisine dates back to the Middle Ages. During the middle ages French cuisine was similar Moorish cuisine (Manero). French cuisine was similar to Moorish cuisine because upon the arrival of moors in 711 A.D., smoked and spiced meats were introduced to the French as well as the appearance of food was influenced because, Moors often altered the appearance of foods with ingredients such as saffron, egg yolks, and sunflowers (Manero). The altering of the food’s color can be seen in modern day French cuisine, especially in the sauces and broths. Examples images follow:“Rouille is a spicy garlic sauce used for fish dishes, fish soup and bouillabaisse.” –[http://www.beyond.fr/food/rouille.ht) This sauce displays influence from the Moorish because it uses both saffron and egg yolks to give the sauces it’s vibrant “gold-ish-yellow” appearance.
