Salade Niçoise

From: Summer Suppers

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.

A Creamy Vegetable Soup

From: Summer Suppers

A really easy way to start off a chic meal with something colourful and full of flavour is to serve a vegetable soup. I serve it with a salsa on top, which gives it a bit more flavour and makes it a bit more interesting.

Blanquette de Veau Debout

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

This is a very traditional dish, a veal casserole, where the veal is cooked with vegetables in a light stock and then at the end a very creamy sauce is made up and the whole thing gets mixed together.

French Onion Soup

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

This soup, originally from Lyon, is as tasty as it is revitalising.

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.
