Laura Calder reminds us that we don''t have to commit to mastering the entire canon of French cuisine to make a delectable chocolate mousse or a sole amandine. And just because we''re in the mood for coq au vin doesn''t mean we have to start dinner with a foie gras terrine and end with Grand Marnier soufflé. We can integrate a French dish into the menus already in our repertoire -- serve coq au vin as a main course, with gingerbread or ice-cream sundaes for dessert. Why not?

LAURA CALDER is host of Food Network Canada’s and the Cooking Channel’s James Beard Award–winning seriesFrench Food at Home. She is also author of the cookbook of the same name, as well as of the bestsellingFrench Taste, which won the Cuisine Canada gold medal and was one of Amazon.ca’s top 100 books of 2010. Af...
