A French menu for a summer's day

 

Although haute cuisine isn't as popular as it once was, there's no denying that French recipes offer a great deal of flavour and interest. This lovely summery menu for 4 (the dessert serves 6 but no matter: enough for seconds!) will strengthen entente cordiale considerably!

Starter

Fresh shelled pea soup

This soup is a lovely dark green colour and has all the wonderful ingredients and flavours of peas à la Française – peas, spring onions, lettuce and bacon – blended into a velvety smooth soup. 

 

Main course

chicken-with-grape-herb-26218  

Roast Chicken with Grape and Herb Stuffing

Here’s a nice roast chicken recipe for serving in summer. All it needs is some buttered new potatoes and fresh garden peas to accompany it and some chilled white wine.

 

Dessert

su175-millefeuille-20076   

Summer Fruit Millefeuille 

You can use shop-bought puff pastry for this – it won't have such a good flavour as the quick flaky pastry below, which is made with butter – but the caramelising will help the flavour and it does cut down on the time.
