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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

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