A simple baguette with cheese, a hearty Beef Bourguignon stew, a sky-high chocolate soufflé— there’s something for every taste in French cooking. French recipes are diverse in the extreme, from haute cuisine like coq au vin or cassoulet to cuisine nouvelle (new cooking) dishes like Chateaubriand.
Creme au Beurre, Menagere (Butter Cream)
A classic baking basic, butter cream frosting, gets flavored with coffee.
Le Marquis (Chocolate Spongecake)
Build your cooking skills and culinary confidence with this classic chocolate cake from Julia Child.
Gratin de Pommes de Terre Provencal
We love Julia Child’s Gratin Dauphinois so much that we did our own take on her recipe for Relish. Here’s another version of the classic dish that Julia described as “full-bodied Mediterranean flavor.”
Ham, Gruyere and Dijon Palmiers
There’s no eating just one of these savory puff pastry snacks. They make great New Year’s Eve cocktail party nibbles.
Blue Cheese Souffle with Toasted Walnut Cream
A cream-drenched walnut sauce ups the ooh-la-la in this classic French dish.
French Beans with Vinaigrette
Thin baby green beans and fresh sweet herbs make this verdant side a spring delight.
Roasted Vegetable Crepes
Thin pancakes with a savory vegetable filling are great for dinner or brunch.
