Celebrate Bastille Day With a French-Themed Party

By: Cooking Channel

July 14th is French National Day, otherwise known as Bastille Day. It's also the perfect opportunity to try out your favorite Laura Calder French Food at Home recipes and throw a French-themed dinner or cocktail party ( we love any excuse to host).

Invite your friends over for a Bordeaux and a spread of your favorite hors d’oeuvres or go all out and serve Laura's Duck a l'Orange. Plus, your party could win you a trip to New York City. Get the details after the jump.

Hurry though! All entries and votes are due by 5pm (ET) on July 18. Full contest details can be found here: www.food.com/FrenchCocktailHour.
