Andouille Tart with apples and Camembert Cheese
What makes this a great meal? The contrasts of hot (andouille sausage), grainy-crunchy (the apples) and unctuous smooth (the Camembert). Some of the ingredients are premium priced so go for it on a splashy occasion.
This recipe was translated from French and also modernized.
As described, this dish is crustless, but it can also be made with a pate brisee crust.

Chorizo Sausage and Manchego Cheese Tortilla
This substantial tortilla is delicious hot or cold. Cut it into chunky wedges and serve for supper or a light lunch with a fresh tomato and basil salad. The addition of spicy chorizo and tangy cheese gives it a wonderful, rich flavor.
These fritters make a nice light lunch or impressive starter and are also great as a snack or canapé with drinks. If you are serving them as a snack, make them slightly smaller – 1 heaped teaspoon rather than the 1 heaped tablespoon needed for the larger portion.
Crispy Vegetable Fritters
If you are on the hunt for ways to get the people in your life to eat more veggies, look no further. These crispy fritters taste like you’re eating something naughty but they’re packed with healthy vegetables.
Put a big basket in the centre of the table with a bunch of other brunch dishes, and watch them disappear. They’re also a fantastic snack reheated in the microwave and served with a dollop of chutney, so make extras.

Hard Boiled Eggs
Starting the eggs in boiling water reduces the degree to which the white sticks to the shell, improving your chances of getting the shell off without damaging the egg later (though with eggs, there are no guarantees).

Provencal Tuna Melt
boulangere's Notes: Purists may cringe at the use of "Provençal" and "Melt" in the same phrase, but if the shoe, so to speak, fits . . . I've grouped some of the flavors that remind me most of Provence, put them between some good, grilled bread, and added a soft, melt-y cheese. And any day I can stand on a soapbox and proclaim the glories of tuna packed in olive oil is a good one.
This is the original. You may modify it for modernization or ingredients on hand.
Sauteed Zucchini with Chorizo and Lime
This dish is great for lazy summertime cooking. The most effort you have to put in is chopping up ingredients. It utilizes the natural fats from the chorizo along with a splash of olive oil for frying the zucchini, which means there's heaps of flavor. The addition of the lime juice cuts through the fattiness of the meat and creates a clean flavor that'll make you glad zucchini are such an abundant veg after all.
Rules for Eating Smørrebrød
Here are some of the rules of eating smørrebrod. First, smørrebrod are not finger food. These are sandwiches that you eat with a knife and fork, thank you very much! (As strange as this sounds, it probably makes sense. If you tried to pick up one of these carefully constructed open-faced sandwiches, the toppings would likely spill down your shirt.) And, if you are sampling multiple smørrebrod, begin with fish, move on to meat and end with cheese.
Just like hygge, smørrebrød is a Danish tradition that we Canadians might think about adopting. A simple smørrebrød or two is a delightful, out-of-the-ordinary lunch. And a lavish smørrebrød buffet is an easy and fun way to entertain at home. Lay out a selection of toppings and garnishes, gather your friends around the table and pass the bread!
