Stage 8 – Nancy/Gérardmer: This recipe for home-style tart is very popular with families from the Lorraine region. Quetsch plums are a popular variety to use in this dish. You will need a 25 cm loose-based flan tin for this recipe.

Stage 12 – Lannemezan/Plateau de Beille: This classic French lamb stew from Normandy uses pieces of boneless lamb shoulder, but you could use lamb neck if you prefer. While it traditionally incorporates turnips (navets), here I use mushrooms and peas.

Lemon tart recipe: Sweet, creamy and mouth-puckering all at the same time.

Delicate little cakes infused with vanilla, madeleines are a quick and impressive-looking dessert fit for big and little kids.
