Laura's French Comforts

By: Kirsten Vala

Laura's Savoury Swiss Chard Tart, a rich, comfort food favorite perfect for using summer greens.

This weekend Laura Calder is cooking up easy, contemporary versions of traditional French comfort foods in French Food at Home. Today at 11:30am ET, Laura cooks up " Cozy" foods but adds some contemporary twists, like Savoury French Toast with herbes de Provence. Laura skips the maple syrup, topping instead with tomato jam – I tracked down a terrific looking recipe from White on Rice Couple.

In Sunday's episode (11:30am ET), Laura flips through her Grandmother's cookbooks, handwritten recipes for family gems. Inspired, she dives in, cooking dishes that are "slow, heartwarming and make you feel well-looked-after." Don't miss Laura's savory version of a traditional French tart - a Swiss Chard Tart (pictured in lead), great for using fresh summer greens.
