    Soups are popular in France, especially filling ones which can be eaten as an entree - this French onion soup for example:

    or this French green lentil soup:

    Another classic French dish is duck a l'orange, which is duck in orange sauce. Here is the recipe:

    Ingredients -

    2 duck breast halves, seasoned with salt and black pepper

    ¼ cup white sugar

    2 tablespoons water

    1½ cups chicken stock

    The segments of 4 oranges, cut away from the membranes

    2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

    1½ cups orange juice

    2 tablespoons minced shallots

    ¼ cup unsalted butter

    2 tablespoons orange zest


    Boil the sugar and water for a few minutes, until the syrup caramelizes and turns a golden brown color. Add the vinegar, juice, shallots, and chicken stock and simmer until the sauce is reduced to a little less than a cup. Add the butter and a tablespoon of orange zest. Stir in the orange segments.

    Sear the duck breasts in a skillet over a high heat. Cook the duck for about 10 minutes on each side or until done. Pour the prepared sauce over the duck breasts and garnish with the remaining orange zest. This makes 2 servings.
