2. Classic French Tomato Mustard Tart

This savoury Tomato Mustard Tart is a classic summer recipe that French home cooks love to make every year when tomatoes are in season. It features a buttery puff pastry, with in-season ripe tomatoes, a sprinkle of grated cheese and a heavy smear of Dijon Mustard at the bottom.

3. Crepe Suzette

Crepes are much like pancakes, but they are much thinner. The basic crepe can be eaten in a variety of ways, with or without  fillings. They are often paired with ice creams and fresh fruits. Whatever maybe the French way of eating them, crepes make a regular appearance on our breakfast table. Orange is one of our favourite fruits, which is why we really like the sweet and tangy Crepe Suzette.
