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.

Ravioli of Pumpkin and Mushroom

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

At home in Ireland, we think of pumpkins only in connection with the ghosts and ghouls of Halloween, but in Provence it's a highly regarded autumn speciality.

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.

French Onion Soup

From: Summer Suppers

Originally from Lyons, onion soup was made popular during the 19th Century by Parisian market workers in Les Halles. Traditionally served after a nuit blanche (sleepless night) because of its supposed ability to quickly dissipate the effects of alcohol, it is an invigorating and revitalising soup.

Spring Chicken Salad in a Loaf

A great way of using up leftover chicken, robust and easily transportable, this is a canny thing to bring on a picnic.

Apple Compote with Crème Anglaise and Burned Butter Sauce

From: Summer Suppers

There is nothing nicer than collecting crisp, fresh apples to make that delicious light dessert, Apple Compote, which is ideally served with a freshly made Crème Anglaise.

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

A lovely healthy salad, served hot, warm or cold and very simply made.

Homemade Chocolate Truffles

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.
