It is amazing how French food has traveled around the world – especially in Australia. Despite a population of only ~100,000, French people’s impact on Melbourne’s culinary scene is undeniable. Because much of Australia’s modern population came over from Europe, the core Melbourne palate is, in essence, a metropolitan blend of various European national cuisines. Naturally, that has led to some of the best-tasting French restaurants being located right near the cozy Carlton suburb.
French food in Carlton goes all the way back to the 1850s – we’re not kidding! In 1858, the Café de Paris opened right near the suburb, paving the way for centuries of Parisian-Aussie cuisine. Imagine having a croissant and wine after a hard day out mining gold. Delicious. By the 1960s, French cuisine was at the point where Australians were writing entire cookbooks just about French food.
Nowadays, French cafes and high end restaurants can be found throughout Carlton and the city. Perfect for any meal of the day, French cuisine continues to have an enduring influence on Aussie tastes.
