    For a starter direction, you ought to serve vichychoisse: a chilly potato-leek soup that is made the nighttime till now and is appropriate for a warm summer season day. purely saute chopped onions and leeks in a pot, upload diced potato and sufficient fowl inventory (or keep-offered broth) to cover and simmer till potatoes are gentle. mixture each and every thing with hand blender (or in a known blender), season with salt/pepper and relax in one day. For the main significant dish, i might grill some fowl (breasts, legs, whichever you like, yet fowl on the bone is very french). Marinate in garlic, olive oil and provence seasoning mixture for type of two hrs, then grill till finished. Serve with a small area salad in a mild French dressing. a usually happening french dinner has a cheese direction till now dessert with 4-6 diverse types. Brie, camembert, chevre and roquefort are classic cheeses to purpose. For dessert, chocolate mousse may well be suitable and may well be arranged earlier than time. it could additionally be somewhat confusing and time-ingesting. A kin I as quickly as stayed with in France have been followers of purely taking clean strawberries and combining them with mint, a sprint sugar and a sprint alcohol (purely sufficient to style) then serving it up with some woman palms and whipped cream. As for wine, i admire a Burgundy or Bordeaux, yet finally you ought to circulate with the wine you enjoy. in spite of everything, you are the single ingesting it!

    It commemorates the French Revolution, when they stormed the Bastille (prison). It's somewhat symbolic of the rise of democracy, where the people are "freed" from the chains of monarchy.
