Black olive tapenade is a typical Provencal appetiser, served on biscuits or crisp warm toast and served with a little aperitif.

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

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.

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

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.

Beef Tartare with Oysters

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

It may take a bit of a leap of faith for some people to eat raw oysters, but in fact they go beautifully with the raw beef of a beef tartare, topped off with an oyster sauce.

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.

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.

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.
