Everything you wanted to know about French food but were afraid to ask.
1. Coquilles Saint-Jacques
You think you know scallops but if you haven’t tried this dish, you don’t know shit.
What to drink: A sauvignon or a Chablis.
For dessert: These scallops are often served for Christmas. So what better dessert than a bûche, the traditional French Christmas dessert to go with it? And who said you can’t serve this dessert any time of the year? Here is the recipe.
3. Moules Marinières
The association between mussels and french fries is a Belgian specialty, but it’s very widespread in France and we brought our own twist to the recipe. There are many ways to cook mussels, my favorite is the moules marinières, a recipe from the west of France where you cook the mussels in a white wine broth with shallots and parsley.
What to drink: A blond Belgian ale, or a white wine.
4. Buckwheat Crêpes
