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.

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

English chef Andrew Winship runs an excellent restaurant in Nimes. Here is how he makes his signature dish.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

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

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.

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.
