    by Audrey

    Known in French as Poisson à la Bordelaise, this fish gratin is a French family staple.

  • Classic French-Style Potato Salad

    by Audrey

    No mayo, fresh herbs and zippy add-ons are what make a Classic French-Style Potato Salad a Summer favorite! In comparison to its American counterpart, almost always thickly dressed with mayonnaise, the French-style potato salad relies on a lively vinaigrette dressing to create a more elegant and lighter version of this staple. The small potatoes are tossed warm in an herby and tangy mix of Dijon mustard, grainy mustard, olive oil and red wine vinegar, then spiked with cornichons, shallots and fresh dill. This is a quick, easy and guaranteed crowd-pleaser…

  • If you can’t go to Provence, Provence can still come to you! With bold sun-kissed flavors, this classic Chicken Provençal is an uncomplicated recipe reminiscing of warm summers in the South of France. It features wine-braised crispy-skinned chicken with loads of melty garlic and shallots, briny bites of green olives, tender artichoke hearts and sweet cherry tomatoes – all showered under fragrant Herbes de Provence.

  • Known in French as a “Chou-fleur Mimosa”, this Whole Cauliflower with Crumbled Egg Vinaigrette is as easy to make as it looks impressive, and is such a fun way to enjoy cauliflower – other than in a gratin. This recipe packs on layers of flavors! The cauliflower head is poached until tender, topped with a tangy shallot vinaigrette, parsley and lastly some crumbled hard-boiled eggs (know as “mimosa” in France – nothing to do with the brunch cocktail!).  

  • Spring time is a perfect moment to indulge in leeks with Dijon Shallot Vinaigrette, known in French as “Poireaux vinaigrette”. This cold starter of tender poached leeks served with a tangy vinaigrette dressing is a timeless French classic. And for good reason—it is a delicious, affordable, and uncomplicated starter to make at home. It also gives these seasonal vegetables often thought of as a supporting player, a well-deserved moment to shine.

  • Coq Au Vin Blanc

    by Audrey

    Quintessentially French, Coq au Vin (literally “rooster in wine”) is a mastodon of our cooking repertoire. Made from a whole chicken cut in 8 pieces, with bacon, mushrooms and carrots, it is traditionally cooked using red wine resulting in a purple-ish sauce. But its “Blanc” version, using dry white wine, is lighter, with brighter flavors and is just a little bit more elegant, if you ask me.
