Madeleines

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

Easy to make little cakes which make the perfect accompaniment to tea.

Homemade Chocolate Truffles

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

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.

Fresh Courgettes Poached with Garlic Pulp and Olives

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

A delicious French dish which would make a great snack or starter.

Cheese Terrine

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This terrine doesn't need cooking at all and it's a great alternative to a large cheese board.

Chestnut Soup with Smoked Butter and Bacon Garnish

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

If you are really keen on preparing your soup from scratch, then the autumn is the time to buy fresh chestnuts.

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.

Lemon Mascarpone Spaghetti

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

A silky, sumptuous dish, that's easy and quick to prepare. One for lovers.

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.
