Le plat principal est l’essentiel du repas et le mets le plus nourrissant. En France, il se compose de viande ou de poisson accompagné de légumes. Une différence remarquable entre les deux cultures, française et américaine, est qu’en France, on n’utilise jamais les doigts pour manger le plat principal. Les Français se servent assidûment du couteau et de la fourchette pour déguster des frites et de la pizza. Par contre, aux États-Unis on ne risqué rien d’offenser des convives si l’on prend du poulet frit ou des cotelettes-barbeque avec les doigts. Vive la difference! https://www.talkinfrench.com/regional-french-food/

Here's the perfect YouTube channel for you: The French Cooking Academy.

The host is a Frenchman who is self-taught in the Escoffier-style, presenting dishes and instruction to the viewers in easy-to-understand English. Right now, he is on a one-year return to France (he lives elsewhere) to show the viewers the country and cuisine.

I like the idea of learning the culture through its food :)

Ah this reminds me of a time in school where we had French classes, and one of our excursions was to have dinner at a French restaurant. We learned to place our orders and speak to the staff in French before hand. I ordered the coq au vin.

Also, there's a TV show "Qui sera le prochain grand pâtissier ?", it's a little like gbbo, but with young professionals competing instead of amateurs.
