Sweet Wine and Fruit Jelly

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

The season for perfectly ripe summer fruit is unfortunately all too short.

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.

Fresh Mackerel, Served with a Hybrid Sauce Verte Pesto

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

Mackerel's a great fish for a weekday supper when you don't have a lot of time ahead of you and you want something really full of vitamins and nice and fat and juicy and tasty.

Pissaladiere

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

A type of Pizza which is a speciality from Nice.

Leftover Croissants with a Béchamel Sauce

From: Summer Suppers

I have two or three sauce recipes I use to take care of any tired or slightly dried out croissants and this is one of my favourites. The sauce is easy, fast and very tasty.

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.

Potatoes Dauphinoise

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

For this dish, you have to select potatoes that will not turn into mash as you cook them. A carefully selected waxy potato will keep its shape and texture during cooking, not too hard and not too soft.

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.

Melon Balls and Almond Twizzle

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

Cavaillon melons might be hard to find in Ireland, but we do have a good choice of melons these days, and I am using three types.

Soufflé au Fromage

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

Whatever you do, don't open the oven door for a peek while it's cooking!
