The sun’s out and it’s Bastille Day, so as an homage to our favourite French chefs Michel Roux Jr and Monsieur Novelli, here are some French (but not too fiddly) recipes to keep the French flavour going through the weekend. We’ve included two “Great British” interpretations of French classics, by our own lovely Jamie Oliver and “The Good Cook” Simon Hopkinson, too.
