Fancy but not TOO fancy is the classic crème brûlée. It’s relatively easy to make, and you can finish it off with a blow torch to impress your guests!
French carpaccio is traditionally made with meat or fish, but we opted for a meat-free option with this vegetable carpaccio and yoghurt dressing.
Tartiflette is a classic French dish traditionally made with potatoes, cheese, lardons and onions. For this French-onion tartiflette, we’ve left out the potatoes to make it a lighter version.
Every home cook needs this ridiculously easy classic in their repertoire. The trick to that timeless earthy flavour is to cook your onions on a very low heat, slowly. This may take some time, but it will be worth it. Make sure they get some nice dark colour, just short of burning, for a perfectly rich French onion soup.
There is no better dish to serve up to guests than a traditional French coq au vin. Cooking with wine guarantees you’ll have plenty of fun in the kitchen with this one! (We recommend a middle-of-the-road wine – don’t waste your best vintage, but don’t use anything so cheap you wouldn’t drink it on its own.)
We could expect nothing less than wholesome when we asked our resident health guru Jana to present us with one of her own Christmas table dishes. This sweet and salty tart is perfectly balanced, and the balsamic glaze is what veggie dreams are made of.
