Blackberry Kir

Kir, the classic French aperitif, is made by adding a splash of cassis to a glass of chilled dry white wine. Here, blackberry liqueur lends a fresh twist.

These classic savory puff pastries, which are said to hail from Burgundy, are a wonderful appetizer served either warm and cold.
Socca with Burrata, Greens, and Olive Dressing

Socca, a naturally gluten-free flatbread native to the South of France, is made with chickpea flour and traditionally eaten plain. Here, it’s reinterpreted with creamy bur rata, a Kalamata olive dressing, and arugula.
Salade Frisée aux Lardons

This French bistro classic is surprisingly easy to prepare at home.
Warm Kale and Tuna Niçoise

Take the traditional Niçoise up a notch by replacing oil-packed tuna with seared sushi-grade ahi tuna, and tossing lightly wilted kale into the mix.
French Onion Soup

Meltingly tender onions, meaty stock, and rich, nutty melted cheese—these are the indispensable elements that make this boldly flavored soup a hallmark of French cuisine—and a favorite of American tables, too.
Ratatouille Gratin

France’s most famous ragout is traditionally long-simmered on the stove, but grilling these summer vegetables gives them a pleasantly smoky finish.
Cherry Clafoutis

Clafoutis (pronounced “kla-foo-TEE”) is a rustic French dessert originally from Limousin, in southern France. This region is best known for its sweet black cherries, which, left whole and unpitted, are traditionally baked in a sweet custard filling.
A French-Style Cheese Plate

Even if you are determined to avoid cooking at all costs, there’s a Bastille Day dish for you. Make a cheese plate in the style of the French, paired with wine and served at the end of a meal.
