Cod Pie with Saffron Mash

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This is a version of a famous French dish called 'Hachis Parmentier', with meat on the bottom and mashed potatoes on top, a bit like Shepherd's Pie. You can play around with the layers and turn them round and use fish instead of meat.

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.

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.

Poached Pears in Red Wine Syrup

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Poached Pears is a really classical dessert, but sometimes it's a bit disappointing because the syrup around the pears is a bit watery. What I like to do is add flavour and stickiness with a little bit of sugar, so there is nothing watery about this recipe.

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.

Poule au Pot

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Poule au Pot is a really rich and decadent dish, but it's really simple to make and needs only really simple ingredients.

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.

Tomato Chutney with Parmesan Crisps

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Chutney! The word conjures up autumn and the one season when work expended earlier in the year promises a welcome abundance of fruit and vegetables. So here goes for a sharp and tasty autumnal treat.

Mussel and Tomato Stew

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This sauce is really the dish. You could use it with pasta or with any white fish but here we use mussels
