French – the language of love and good food

Pommes Pont Neuf These thick-cut fried potatoes get their name from Paris’s Pont Neuf (“New Bridge” – in fact the city’s oldest one), where, it is said, pommes frites used to be sold.

Parmesan Tuiles A tuile is a baked wafer, curved like a tuile or tile of the sort that line the rooftops of French country homes, especially in Provence.

Boulangère Potatoes Boulangère means baker in French and gives its name to this potato dish because after the bakers had finished baking their bread for the day, the locals would take their pot of potatoes to bake in their ovens as they cooled down. Sliced potatoes are layered with stock and seasoned.

Tartiflette This dish from Savoy in the Alps is made with potatoes, reblochon cheese, lardons and onions. The word is probably derived from the Arpitan (alpine) word for potato, tartiflâ.

Chou à la Flamande Belgian dish of red cabbage slow braised in vinegar with apples, onions, herbs, sugar and a hint of bacon flavouring.
