Fall is a glorious time to get cooking. So turn your oven on and dive into any of these 30 Simple French Fall Recipes from Le Chef's Wife.
I have been writing French Riviera Recipes for years (there are close to 150 French Recipes, made simple, on this website!) and I am thrilled to share with you my favorite Fall recipes to bring a bite of La Cote D'Azur to your table, where ever you are. Starting with Soups, Salads, main dishes and desserts, you will find everything you need to prepare a delicious French Fall Menu or simply just better meal prep for a busy week ahead.
Fall in the South of France is wonderful. The days are bright and sunny yet the evenings bring a slight chill that makes you want to cozy in with a fragrant, warm dish. The markets abound with such incredible produce. Fresh figs! Apples! Pears! The last of the eggplant and summer squash converge with butternut squash and pumpkin. Fresh herbs are used on everything.
French Fall Soups
If you are new here, you are about to discover that I love French Soups! I host a Soup Sunday Challenge every January so make sure to join! Each year I add at least 10 new Soup Recipes to the blog. I always have a pot of soup in the fridge and I love to start a dinner party with a bowl of soup. Here are some of my favorite Fall Soup Recipes:
