terroir-things“Terroir” is a French term that literally translated means: earth, or soil.

However, there is no such thing as a literal translation of anything French. In a larger context, we can define “terroir” as the specificity of place, which has come to include not only the soil in a region, but also the climate, the weather, and the most important: culinary specialties that can differentiate one piece of land from another.

As is often the case, the French believe the universe revolves around, well, France, naturally, so their terroir is unique.
