Haute Cuisine

The phrase "haute cuisine" is nearly synonymous with "fine dining." Literally it is the term the French give to "high-level" culinary arts. The main characteristics are menus prepared by recognized chefs, using their own, often proprietary recipes. These culinary chefs like to regale diners with plates that not only appeal to a demanding palate, but also delight the eye in their presentation. The ingredients are often unusual or scarce. They must be fresh, of course, and flavored with spices and sauces not found in the average restaurant. Usually "haute cuisine" refers to European cooking of the highest caliber, but it can also include the best that Asian and Mexican cuisines have to offer. Expect to pay well for the dining experience.
