Real French home cooking is easier than you think! Leave haute cuisine to fussy restaurants, and dive into these uncomplicated classics from Audrey Le Goff, founder of the blog Pardon Your French. Drawing inspiration from her childhood in the north of France, Audrey shares simple fare, full of the rich, complex flavors French cuisine is known for. From quiche to crêpes, these homey dishes are anything but humble.

Explore France's distinct regions and delve into the culture behind each recipe. Hearty cold-weather favorites from the north, like Alsatian Pork and Sauerkraut Stew and the supremely flakey Thin-Crusted Onion, Bacon and Cream Tart are quick and comforting. Provençal Vegetable and Pistou Soup, from the sunny south of France, is packed with bright herbs and ripe produce, and Basque Braised Chicken with Peppers is sure to please with a burst of spice. The essential One-Pot French Onion Soup provides a taste of France any night of the week, and the beloved, buttery Kouign-Amann is surprisingly easy to master. With friendly instructions and easy-to-find ingredients, you'll soon feel right at home with French cooking.
