What We Love: Savory French Recipes


No Comments


I might have a bit of an obsession with French food (and cafes, and bistros, and markets…). Maybe.

That’s why Maggie wanted to spend a little time in Paris this month (via the blog, of course)! We’ve been talking about must-visit eateries in the city, the best outdoor food markets, and a jam shop that needs to be marked on your Paris map. However, since I’m not always in Paris when french cravings hit, here are some of Eat Boutique’s favorite recipes to bring a bit of France into your kitchen and onto your table.


Chicken Paillard {pictured above}: As classic bistro dishes go, this is one of the simplest, most delicious ones.

Denise’s Baguette Recipe: Bring crusty baguettes home by making them at home. Get step by step instructions for the ideal housewarming present.

French Cheese Plate: Let’s talk about the cheese plate, shall we? Shelby talks her five favorite varieties, best condiments, and a little cheese plate etiquette.


Apple Cider Steamed Mussels: Cook up a pot of mussels and escape to northern France tonight. This recipe mixes mussels with cider, so don’t forget bread for soaking up the sauce!

Vegetarian Pot Au Feu: This French stew is as old as the country itself but ours is a lovely, lighter, vegetarian version! It’s topped with an oozy, creamy egg.

French Onion Soup: This classic is good all the time, but especially during rainy Spring afternoons.

Fava Bean Soup: Join Mimi Thorisson in Medoc for her aunt’s classic rendition on fava beans. If that’s not spring, we don’t know what is.


Jam and Cheese Crepes: These breakfast, lunch, dessert, anytime crepes are both savory and sweet. I think they make a pleasing sendoff.

Bon Appetit!
