Poulet à la Normande

Flavors of sweet apple, cider, cream and chicken are brought together lovingly in this simple classic braise from the north of France.

Chicken Salad with Grilled Eggplant

French by design, Chinese by flavor, this salad is a unique dish. Putting the sesame and ginger to the side, this is otherwise very much akin to a “composed salad” (salade compose) where you arrange the ingredients, dress, but don’t toss, along with grilled chicken breast and a vinaigrette on the zesty side. Heat can…

Martha Rose Shulman’s Gazpacho

The last of the tomato crop, and that last bit of hardened baguette is exactly what this recipe was designed for. The bread is what gives this gazpacho its wonderful texture. If you keep a pitcher of this ready in the refrigerator, you’ll never be short of a refreshing snack, or a quick & healthy…

Butter-Fried Oysters

French Lasagne

Nigella Lawson’s French Lasagne (savory baked croissant pudding) uses up stale croissants by splitting & stuffing them with ham & cheese, before sprinkling them with more cheese, dousing them in garlic-milk infused beaten eggs. The croissants don’t need to be stale to achieve this delicious eggy, cheesy wonder. If they are fresh though, you can…

Peppers with Feta

Due to the heft of these peppers, this dish is sufficient enough to be served as a main. Extra small bell peppers are stuffed with a mild feta, and baked with a lavish handful of herbaceous bread crumbs. Although a simple dish, these peppers come with an amazingly complex taste – perfect at both room…

French 75

Popping a bottle of Champagne on New Year’s Eve & enjoying a glass is no odd occurrence, but few will take the extra step and use the wine as the foundation of this delectable cocktail.
