Fabulous French recipes

French cooking at its best is simple and flavoursome. And we've shared our favourites from what is often referred to as the world's greatest cuisine. Indulge in warming, delicious coq au vin or beef provencal in the cooler months. And nothing beats a salad nicoise in Spring. But fear not, we haven't forgotten dessert because really, no one does sweets better than the French! So get cooking and bon appetit!
