We can feel the craving for French cooking as Bastille Day approaches. And, as much as we love sharing quick and hearty weeknight dinners with you, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to share some of our favourite oh-so-fancy French desserts! The best part is that these are decidedly easier to make than they may look. Let’s all channel our best Julia Childs and try one of these impressive and elegant French treats!

Crème brûlée

Would you believe you could make this iconic dessert with only five ingredients? Just make sure to watch it when its under the grill, as the sugar on top is quick to burn!

Pistachio macaroons

translates to “a thousand sheets”, so its no wonder this towering dessert — also sometimes known as a Napoleon — is a dessert to behold! We turn to trusty store-bought puff pastry to create this perfect pâtissierie at home.

Peach and blueberry galette

galettes for something new.
