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.
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.

Le Chef's Wife
I love receiving your emails each Sunday. We only get to stay in our little apartment in Cannes a few times a year and I miss it (and the food) terribly. Thank you for helping me recreate the tastes and smells from our “Happy Place.”
Awwwww, this makes me so happy to hear! Recreating the tastes and smells of our time living in the South of France (Antibes and Nice) is exactly why I started this blog! Le Marché Forville is one of my favorite markets - we used to go all the time! I am glad you are enjoying my recipes - it is because of comments like yours that I try to remain consistent in publishing a recipe every weekend. Bonne journée, Anina Belle
