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.

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.

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

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

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.

Salted Pineapple

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Using salt as a crust for food is intended to preserve as perfectly as possible the original flavour of the food.

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.

Sweet Wine and Fruit Jelly

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

The season for perfectly ripe summer fruit is unfortunately all too short.

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.

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.
