French Bistro Classics

From rich coq au vin to a pretty-as-a-picture Tarte fine aux pommes, these traditional Gallic dishes are classics for a reason.

Crisp duck confit, Boeuf bourguignon, Bouillabaisse with rouille... bistro fare is a Parisian's comfort food. The combination of rich sauces, melt-in-your mouth meat and instantly recognisable textures all add up to simple satisfaction. The Gourmet Traveller food team has collated this collection of bistro-inspired recipes to bring a touch of Gallic flair to your cooking.
