Mushroom and Herb Omelette

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

With some lovely free-range eggs, it's the simplest of meals, but none the worse for that.

Homemade Chocolate Truffles

From: Summer Suppers

In chocolate shops, chocolate truffles come in all sorts of flavours, but the simplest you can make at home have just three ingredients: great quality chocolate, fresh cream and a little bit of cocoa powder for dusting.

Perfect Frites

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

Empty plates, every time.

Quiche Lorraine

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

With the help of a Quiche Lorraine, you can win the battle to convince your growing children that vegetables are 'a good thing'.

Fondant au Chocolat

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

Try this easy to make, rich, moist and most decadent confection you could imagine.

Apricot and Vanilla Jam

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Sometimes eating a fresh apricot is a little disappointing, but when the flavour intensifies through the jam making process, then I think it is out there on its own. The season for fresh apricots comes and goes before you know where you are, but if you are lucky enough to land on a glut of this rather unusual fruit, it's well worth making a decent quantity of jam.

Pain Bagnat Salad in a Sandwich

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This is a bit of a cheat, not really cooking at all, unless you count boiling the beans and the quail's eggs. Traditionally it is regarded as a lunchtime filler for hungry workers in the fields, probably washed down with a jug of robust local wine.

Salade Niçoise

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

This is surely the most famous and argued over salad in the world. My idea for deconstructing my Salade Niçoise is to present all the elements separately. The purists say there shouldn't be any vegetables at all but I am used to having green beans and potatoes in my version. Just tell yourself you are not from Nice, and go wherever your taste takes you.

Cod Pie with Saffron Mash

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This is a version of a famous French dish called 'Hachis Parmentier', with meat on the bottom and mashed potatoes on top, a bit like Shepherd's Pie. You can play around with the layers and turn them round and use fish instead of meat.

Moroccan Lamb Tagine

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

Moroccan Lamb Tagine is a really tasty and exotic meal and it's a great dish to cook to get the children into the kitchen with you.
