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.

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.

Truffled Chicken with Macaroni

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

If you are lucky enough to find a really good French or Italian truffle, there are lots of ways of making it go a long way.

A Creamy Vegetable Soup

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

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.

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.

Apple Compote with Crème Anglaise and Burned Butter Sauce

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

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

Tian - Provencal Version of Ratatouille with Homemade Pesto

From: Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen

Once you have it made, you can eat it hot warm or cold and it’s even better if you leave it overnight.

Duck à l’Orange

From: Trish's Paris Kitchen

This version of Duck à l’Orange is as uncomplicated as it is decadent.

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.

Lamb Ragout with Tomato, Cumin and Artichokes
