French Recipes (Most Popular)
This is a basic quiche recipe that I used all the time when I lived in France. The Lorraine in the recipe is the bacon, onion & swiss cheese. You can take those items out and replace them with anything you like. Any type of veggies in the house usually will work!Submitted by FRANCOPHILE619
Cinq à sept ("five to seven") (pronounced "sank-ah-set") is a Quebec French term for a time in the afternoon intended to be spent with friends or colleagues, enjoying light pre-theatre meals, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres or to escape rush hour traffic. A "cinq à sept" is held before the formal dinner hours, before the participants eat in restaurants and is not strictly between five and seven o'clock.
In France, cinq à sept is a synecdoche for a visit to one's mistress, derived from the time of day Frenchmen would make such a visit.
