French Dinner Party

I had an idea to have a family dinner party every Friday. Every Friday we would choose a different cuisine.
We had a lovely French dinner last night.

I made steamed broccoli, coq au vin (recipe loosely based on Tyler Florence recipe), and grapefruit, orange, avocado salad. Not sure if the salad is french or not, but I had to use up my CSA Box

Hannah reading facts about France.

Great book to have on hand. Not just for Teenagers, I need a few lessons. 

Pièce de résistance

Oh la la

Apple and Almond Frangipane Tart
This tart......oh this tart! This I will make more often. First time I tried this was in England at my MIL house. It was from a packet and was pretty good. I thought to myself, "Self, when I am home I must try and make this." The recipe is from Pastry Girl. I switched out the pears for apples. I think either is delicious. There are a couple of steps, but real easy to make. 

What do you like to make?
